Re: WIC Changes? Near Tears

I just called the WIC office and pretended to need to enroll my baby. I was told I needed to have a script for special formula.
She said its up to the dicretion of the nutritionist to see if the diagnosis fits the formula
I am totally confused

It sounds like the person that told you no didn't care at all about the medical script. They were just being a butt! Go back and DEMAND that your child be allowed to use the special formula. Nutritionist are not medical doctors. They shouldn't be trying to figure out a diagnosis at all. Your Pedi's job was to do that. He did by giving a script.
On a side note..most states make deals with formula companies that is why individual states push different formulas.

Not sure if you have looked into it at all but goats milk can be used for babies as well.

My nephew was having trouble with everything including some that was well over $20 a can (seems it was close to $30 )

Anyhoo,I did some research for SIL so she could have some facts (I had used it but wanted to have proof for her that it is okay) Anyhoo,she made the switch to goats milk and my nephew had no problems with it and grew like he should.Quite a chubber actually! Her pedi kept saying that he wouldn't get what he needed but every time they drew blood all results were normal.Goats milk compares the most closely to human breats milk from what I have been able to find.

Have you tried to see if your baby will latch on? You may not need a whole lot of help to get things going again
