I Know that most people here dont like the idea of formula feeding and neither do I, especially after basically being forced to with my first child...(hosptial wouldnt allow me to and we were stuck in hopsital for 6 days while they monitored my sons eatting and so on) So by that time my milk did not come in and he wouldnt latch on at all even with help from a lactation specialist...

Anyways NOW with my second child I was given the opportunity right from 30 minutes after my c section to breast feed and she latched on a little but for the most part didnt want anything to do with kept trying for the last 3 weeks and a day and still nothing and again my milk never came in so I assume that my body is just not a breast feeding body...:

Anyways my Husband makes too much money for us to get WIC, but how that can be I have no clue because we dont even have money to buy ourselves food right now let alone afford the outrageous formula prices...but yet we cant get help..?

I have a step son (almost 8) my son (almost 5) and Kaitlyn (3 weeks old) now and me and my its a decent size family...and I just dont understand not being able to get help...we have bills out the wazooo and alot arent getting paid but whatever...

I figured I would come here and ask for help, I have received some baby bedding, breast pads, and clothes from a couple women on here and I SOOOO appreciate it, and I HATE asking for help...but I just dont have a choice anymore!

Right now my daughter has taken Similac Advance & Similac Organic & Enfamil Lipil without any any of those would be great if you have some..or if you have WIC but dont use..I could use it...But really ANY formula would be great, as I cant let my baby starve...and she eats a lot as she was 10 lbs 8 oz at birth

Also could use formula checks or coupons...anyway to help feed our baby!

Thank you all for reading this and any help you might give...BTW I did sign up for the nestle, similac and enfamil club things for coupons etc...but still havent recieved anything...and not going to get much im sure anyways.

it is against board rules to post about formula... just a heads up. your thread will be removed.

Is it really against the TOS to post about formula? I know I've discussed formula before as my 9month old is on Nutramigen. I always thought it was against the TOS to promote FF but not to discuss it if you're in the situation due to complications, etc.

Jessica, I have a $5 Similac coupon I'd be more than happy to mail you. It is good from 10/22/07 until 2/19/08. I also have an Enfamil $5 coupon that expires 12/31/07.

I know it's not the same as getting some without having to spend the $ but I hope it helps.

I also have some coupons to CVS, it's $2 off any $10 purchase. You could use one CVS coupon with the formula checks to save $7 total at CVS. Please PM me if you need these.
