It's scary and wonderful to move that ticker along, all at the same time!

FTR, a forum I used to be on did sort of a test with the formula companies - a bunch of us agreed to sign up, half of us were "formula feeding" half were "breastfeeding" moms (regardless of what we actually were doing with the babies) and then we waited to see how many coupons/samples/etc we got.
The breastfeeding group got TONS more of everything, through pregnancy and while the babies were infants. Like, TONS. Not even comparable.

I just collect all my coupons and samples, for formula, baby food and cereal, and diapers, and take them to the church nursery - there are always moms there that can use most of what I get.
