Yes, you can get formula with food stamps, we'd always get extra, or a bigger can with our food stamps when our son was still drinking it before he turned a year old.



And you can always talk to your baby's pediatrician to get a new formula that will be easier on the baby's stomach. The doctor will have to write a prescription that you will need to take to the WIC office so that they can get the new formula put on your WIC benefits.

Yes you can buy formula with food stamps. I he is throwing it up you probably need to switch him to something for sencitive stomachs. Just get a doc to write you a script for a different formula the take the script to wic and they will pay for that formula you just have to stay with the brand that wic covers like out here wic pays for similac so you could get similac extra sencitive or soy or even the alumintium kind for realy sencitive babies.

You can pretty much buy anything that is food-ish, but not cooked already. (like hot deli food)
You can even buy certain energy drinks. If it has a nutrition label, you can usually buy it.

In Missouri you can buy RedBull.... But not Monster. I know that much... Unless they have changed it in the last 6 months.

yes, but if you take your LO pedi, they may recommend he be changed to a different formula, like the one for acid reflux, then WIC can switch what type you get...that may help also.

yes you can! but if you talk to your pediatrician he can change the formula, then give you a "prescription" that you take to WIC and they will honor it. take the cans of formula you got before and they will exchange them at the office. i went through this with my last child. he had to take alimentum. which is expensive as heck and he could only take the premade stuff! wic provided it until his tummy matured some. gl!

It technically is food so I don't see a problem with it I imagine you can. You can even buy soda with it so I don't see why you can't buy baby food lol
