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 healthyfluids, 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, thevery 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 extracharge). 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 verydifficult 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 couldtry Freecycle in her area and request baby items. They are always being offered
on our Freecycle. Best of luck to her, Amy
