      this is true for those who can nurse. Its so great for the baby, and the mom!

      The mom does have to eat nutritionally and drink a good amount of healthy

      fluids, of course to make nursing as effective and easy as possible. WIC can

      help with the purchase of foods that will help her with that.

      Try all the diaper manufacturers as well for freebies. With feeding, the

      very best, cheapest, healthiest formula is . . . mom’s breast milk. She should

      try nursing and see how it goes. Almost every hospital in our area has a

      lactation consultant on staff that is part of the neonatal care (no extra

      charge). She should ask for a consult. If you or any other friends have nursed

      your babies, you can help her. Also, if she can’t

      nurse, she shouldn’t kick herself. It is not always easy and can be very

      difficult for mom and baby to learn. Most doctors have free samples they can

      give their patients – and as someone else said, she should sign up for WIC. The

      income standards are much higher than other public benefits. Also, she could

      try Freecycle in her area and request baby items. They are always being offered

      on our Freecycle. Best of luck to her, Amy
