Advice for Moms Advice for Moms

Hi! I have my initial appointment tomorrow and would like to know if they will be able to give me something right away or if I will have to wait. Please spare me your WIC bashing-this was a pretty tough year for us and I have never had to ask for help before.

This. Also, don't feel ashamed. There is NOTHING wrong when oyou really need the help. What pisses people off is not really needing it and abusing the system.

 

Hope things get better for you :-)

Right away as long as you have all the paperwork needed.

 


Thanks! They were super nice and explained everything to me since I was clueless :-)

This post makes me so happy :) it could have been a bash fest, but everyone was very supportive of the OP. That is what cafemom should be like all the time.

I, like you, didn't want to go to WIC either because I was afraid to ask for help. Its a wonderful program though and it really does help. They even let me rent a breast pump for as long as I need to, gave me formula checks, and set me up.with a lactation specialist while I breast and formula fed.
