I had my son the other day and he's healthy other than being cranky. I asked the nurse about it and she said that he's allergic to something in the breast milk. So, she recommended this special rice based formula for him that's supposed to be good for sensitive stomachs. It is pretty expensive and I don't have a lot of money since I was on maternity leave for 2 months before giving birth. My fiance helps some but it's hard since he makes minimum wage pushing carts at Target. I only made minimum wage busing tables at a retirement center. So money is pretty tight right now and my fiance would rather spend his money on pointless video games than support our son. I mean he's a great guy who was with me through the whole birth process of our son and takes wonderful care of my 3 year old twin daughters (from a my ex boyfriend.) But, I need the money to be able to get the formula for my son. Any advice is appreciated?View Thread
