You can always ask to change it, or find someone to trade with. Switching one can for one can is okay to do.

Whenever I go into wic they always ask me if my babies are still taking the same formula. You can have your doctor sign a note as well.

Get the doctor to write a note that the baby is allergic to the regular formula that the baby needs to use the gentlease and then give it to the wic office and they'll switch the milk for you

Yes if the doctor writes you a note WIC will change it but it has to be a medical reason which he can note that it makes baby sick.

Bella. Wic is a government help program. They provide formula and baby food up until your LO is 5 years old

When my boys were babies Wic would change it as long as I had a note from the doctor on a prescription paper.

They'll do it as long as they get a note. We had to do that with having Nutramigen.

Yep, as long as you have an rx they will give it to you! My daughter was a preemie and had to have LOTS of special things and they gave it!!
