Re: Haha, I just realized...

Gotta love how they give you formula to support breastfeeding.


Our walmart won't take formula back without a receipt because Walmarts accept WIC here.

That's a fantastic idea! I have a can of formula from one of those and like four packs of diapers people have bought us. We'll have to give it a go.

Re: Haha, I just realized...

Isn't that stealing??

While I agree that it's ironic formula is in a "Breastfeeding Support" kit, I think it's wrong of you to take money that doesn't belong to you. That formula should have been donated to a church or a shelter for someone in need.

Someone correct me if I am wrong. I don't consider that stealing because Walmart will still make money on the formula when they sell it. The only one losing per say is the formula company because they were expecting to get a costumer out of it.

I don't know if it's so much stealing, but more of a good conscience thing... I've always donated mine to women in need or given it to friends who FF. I couldn't in good conscience return it somewhere for money... That's just me.
