Must be Enfamil day! I got 2 $5 checks and a sample can...with a $3 check.


But before tossing them, see if your local shelter could use them!

It was just papers... I assume just the coupons... we do take the cans over to shelters.

It's just... so galling to me that they so clearly have it crafted for a new mother who is within the first rough weeks of breastfeeding to get it and think "omg, without the feeding issues? I can't do this anymore, I'll go for the formula".

Gah.
