I am in great need of any enfamil formula checks that anyone may have and not using. My husband just lost his job and we have a beautiful baby girl 6weeks old at home with 3 other children as well. These are rough times and would love some help with th formula. Please email me if here is anyone with extra checks that are unwanted. Thank you in advance!!!! Kaylah08@live.com
Thanks for your Reply!
Go to your local WIC office and sign up for WIC....if your other kids are under the age of 5 yrs they should get it to
WIC doesn't give enfamil anymore, they give similac, but either way it's free & they help with other foods than just formula for parents with kids under 5. You can also go out for food stamps at the welfare office. It takes a bit to get approved but sometimes if you tell them you're in real dire need they will give you something temporary upfront. You can also try salvation army, your township, your local churches ( you don't have to be a member & they don't care what you do or don't believe in), & other local resource help centers in your area. Your health dept should have a list of place that can help & so should your local WIC office. A lot of your resource centers can help with other things as well like energy assistance, clothing, childcare centers, counseling, jobs, medical, dental, diapers, financial assistance, food for you & DH & other LO's, immunizations(free @ some health dept.s or at least affordable), & even transportation. You kinda just gotta do some research for what your area has to offer. I know it's not easy & it sucks to have to go to these places when it's something you have never had to do before, but they help till you get on your feet & sometimes they can be real life savers. It really isn't easy with the economy right now, trust me I really do understand how you feel. I'm so sorry you are going through this and will help you how I can. If you go to enfamil's website & register as a member they will send you a free can of formula and most pediatricians office are given plenty of samples to give out to new parents & if you tell them your situation they will most likely be happy to give some, mine did when we 1st hit our hardships. That should help while you find your local resource help centers. Good Luck. I'll keep an eye on you post if you have any other related ?'s I can help with or if there is anything else I can think of. Hope this helps.
In our state (AR) they only issue enfamil and if the baby can only take a certain kind the baby's doctor can write a script for it. If you know anyone that resently had a baby they might have some samples that were mailed to them from the company. I know that I have about 6 cans at my house that the baby can't use.
Sorry. I wasn't aware that some states give different formula. I guess I assumed that they all did the same thing. I just moved to Indiana and I'm not sure then what they give, but I know in Nevada they wont even give enfamil with a doctors script for it anymore. My sister-in-law had a hell of a time with it. I haven't been on WIC recently, however I have been using my other local resources and I do know that each state has help options out there other than welfare and WIC, but that is where I would recommend starting out as well as local churches. Thanks for informing me guys. I would hate to accidental give anyone else in-accurate iinformation.
