Anyone else getting junk baby mail? I'm pretty sure the dr's office sold my name already, as I've been getting plenty of formula stuff. Today I got a big box with 2 HUGE cans of formula in the mail. WTH?! I remember this happening with ds too, but not until closer to when he was born (and after he was born).

 

So.... what will you do with all the formula (if you breastfeed)?

 

I will probably end up keeping one can for an emergency (I kept one with ds too but never even opened it). The rest of it I donated to a womans domestic violence shelter. I don't know what I'll do with it this time, I guess seek out a new shelter or something? I don't live in the same state as last time.

Add some flour and water to the formula and use it for pancakes?

I'd donate.  I do that with any formula I get and baby cereal & juice that I've gotten in the past from WIC.
