So I went to sign up for WIC today, and while I was there I was of course questioned if i was still nursing, I told the woman yes and my dd is 10 mos. old. she said congratulations on that! then another woman chimed in and said well what else do you give her? i said, just a few bites of small things for now but no rice cereal or jars of baby food. she looked at me with disbelief and told me i needed to start giving her FORMULA ENRICHED WITH IRON!! i was shocked and told her that my dd was never going to have formula b/c there's nothing wrong with my milk supply! she said that my dd needed to have rice cereal with a hard boiled egg yolk on top, mixed with some formula! : I walked out of there pretty ticked off! I thought WIC was pro-breastfeeding?? can you believe that lady?
