I had to run to the store to get some cleaning supplies and creamer for my coffee, lol, tmi I know ;). Anyway while I was in line to cash out there was a young couple ahead of me complaining that their wic only covers 9 small cans of formula a month and that one if them will have to go get a job just to feed the baby and its not fair and on and on. Well the cashier (male btw) said that was why he was trying to talk his wife into bfing. The girl ahead of me said "hells no I don't want some kid hanging of my tits 24/7". I was floored. I could tell the cashier wanted to say something but bit his tongue. I did too but bit my tongue also. She went on and on about how formula was actually safer for a baby because thus way they aren't getting all of the processed chemicals that come from the food the mom eats and how she doesn't want to have to eat organic food all the time because its soo expensive. I could bite my tongue no longer. I said to her, read the liable in that can. She said she couldn't read half the names on there. Exactly, why give your infant something processed that you can't read the names of the stuff in it. I can tell you what's in bm. 100% unprocessed, no additional artificial fillers pure Momma's milk. Well, she quit get complaining and paid and left. I just shook my head, here's a girl that's maybe 18 that's 1)talking like that (maybe I'm just getting old) and 2) is soo mis-informed and complaining that she or her bf will have to go get a job now, I've been working since I was 16 to buy what I want and/or need. I'm getting laid off here in 3 weeks and my family is trying to convince me I should run right down for food stamps and wic just because I can, not because I may need it. Not saying anything negative about either of those because they are there if you need them, they shouldn't be a privilege or a demand.
