Those postal fairies love us. Oh and trust me, I will be getting me some free milk ASAP. Can you believe it's almost $4 a gallon?! What happens if it just keeps going up? Could I end up spending $10 for a gallon of milk in a few years?

I don't know. I thank goodness we qualify for WIC. I just wouldn't buy milk if we didn't... I'd do powdered maybe once a week so that I could make it really last, but I would not be able to afford milk if not for WIC. You could always just buy a cow if it gets too crazy.

*being nosey and had to peak in*

Caiden and I both do Lactaid milk and WIC covers that, but OMG if they didn't I don't know what this poor kid would do. The stuff is almost 5 bucks a half gallon here!!! =-S

I've actually thought about getting my own cow. Could you just see me out there milking my cow every morning?

No; I'd pay to, though...


I know WIC would cover lactaid, but Maddie doesn't seem to do that great even on that; if I give her more than one cup of it, she still gets runs and such. I have pretty much totally switched her to soy. Though now with my abundant milk supply, she isn't doing anything but breast milk again...

Though I do wish they'd cover soy milk, I have nothing against WIC. I am thankful to get what I do get. Maddie is just lactose, and she can still do the cheese, so she gets 4 lb. a month (which I usually wait for a BOGO sale to get even more!) plus her cereal, eggs, and juice. I'd go broke buying all that stuff... I appreciate the WIC. I just think they need to get with it and start supporting the people who absolutely can't have dairy (like your Layne did I spell that correctly?).

yes you spelled Layne correctly.

and I loved them for a long time, but I didnt understand why my baby didnt qualify for the milk he needed. It never made sense to me. and they were never nice about it. they always gave me a hard time

That's just sucky that they gave you a hard time, I'm sorry. My WIC is usually pretty good. There's a certain person there I don't particularly care for, but aside from that they're all good.

Teri, it is funny that you mention buying a cow. DH was complaining about milk prices the other day and said "why don't we just buy a cow?" Ummmm.....maybe cause we live on a 10,000 SF lot and have no place to put it....... And the neighbors would probably complain.

We go through a gallon every other day. My 14 year old is a milk fiend. I have to have a glass every morning as well.

I still think milk is gross and unnecessary. Hormones and icky and pus and *gag*. No thanks. Yea, the Dairy Industry likes us to believe it necessary for our bones and whatever else, but they're pretty much crazy. Cow's milk is designed to feed baby cows ... not people. And overpriced too boot. Annoying.

I don't drink milk because I've been brainwashed into thinking I need it. I drink it because it tastes good. Nothing like an ice-cold pus-filled beverage to quench your thirst.

I enjoy milk too Teri!! BUt luckily for me, the most I've paid is 3.29/gallon (when I was too lazy to make an additional stop and haul the kid in and out of another store just for milk). 2.99 is the most I usually pay. It's on sale this week at Meijer for 2.50. I'll probably stop in for a few gallons!
