Im wondering...Im already on my 5th 12.9 oz can of formula sence july 26th (and the cans almost gone).. So like 15 days... So that means I would go through about 10 cans a month. Does this sound like a normal amount? Hes only 3 1/2 weeks though. Or do I have a little piggy?! Lol. He eats every 2-3 hours and about 3 oz each time. (thats approx..Sometimes a little more or less) thanks! I dont know how much they 'normally' eat at this time. Im glad I have wic because formula is so expensive. 16 or 17 bucks a can (here at least) so 10 cans at least a month would add up. But im thinkin I will have to buy some on my own for sure because I get 9 cans a month and when he keeps eating more.. I will definitly have to. Thanks for your help!

This is partly why I really hope I can breast feed!!! So long as I can figure something out with my inverted nipples.
