Ok, I'm having a problem. Jake just turned 6 months at the end of May so I started giving him some Stage 2 fruit (a friend's son outgrew stage 2 and she gave me her extras). He had lots of problems, it was just too thick. I bought 1 applesauce and 1 banana, Stage 1, and he did well with those. Well, WIC just started at the beginning of this month giving me 64 jars of fruits/veggies and 31 jars meats, but it has to be 4 oz. only, any brand. I can only find Stage 1 in plastic containers that are 2.5 oz in a 2 pack for a total of 5 oz. and they do not qualify. So what am I supposed to do? Get 95 jars of baby food he won't eat? Pay out of pocket for Stage 1 foods when I obviously can't afford it, or else I wouldn't be on WIC? Does anyone know if any brand or store sells Stage 1 in 4 oz. containers? I won't lie, I'm pretty frustrated about this...I didn't want to take WIC in the first place, but I had to; and it's been pretty good (other than an incident where a lady at WIC made me cry because of how rude she was to me), but why can't I get what I need???
