I went to wic today and they gave me vouchers for 95 jars of baby food a month. Did they make a mistake? I only got 32/mo with my son who was ff.

Not a mistake. You get way more when you breastfeed.

Doubtful. I don't use them though, I just tell them not to bother with it because we don't use purees. For some reason they give bf babies more

How Old is your baby? When do they begin giving baby food?

No, they really load babies up on solids, and hive extra food for breastfeeding moms. I never gave my kids jar foods, and they didnt have solids until later, so my brother with special needs recieved all my babyfood jars.

Nope they give that much. I don't do baby food so I don't even use those checks

Nope, they load you up if you breastfeed until 1 yr.  You have the option of cutting back as much as you want next time, which you may or may not want to do.  My first (bf until 11.5 months) refused almost all jarred foods completely.  My second (still bfing and currently 11.5 months) ate a better variety, but seldom had even half a jar in a sitting.  Finally she decided that she only eats finger foods.  But I have heard of kids eating 2 jars fruits/veggies AND 1 jar meat a day.  So the 95 jars may come in handy, or you may end up donating some.
