After having our second child 4 weeks ago, we have received a lot of formula and what not in the mail. But don't need it because I am breast feeding. And our newborn has already outgrown newborn diapers that we still have some of. We have looked into donating it to a women's charity/safe house

Local church or food pantry who may give things like that away to low income or needy families.

I gave a couple of cases of newborn diapers to the hospital that I had Walker at.

Find your local food bank they would be more than happy to get them. I would however hold onto a little formula for a just in case moment if it isn't going to expire soon that is. I remember having to pump and dump due to an illness/meds once and was happy to have my sample formula when my frozen stuff was out. Just an idea.

I agree, I think you should keep the formula. I was planning on EPing until DD was a year old but I just didnt want to do it anymore and stop before her birthday and thank God I had a bunch of formula, it just cost way to much. I was saving it and if I didnt use it I was going to give it to one of those places. But you really never know what could happen to your supply so keep I would keep the formula for now.

Do you know anyone that is pregnant? Or anyone you know, know of someone pregnant? Or you could just keep it in your car until the next time you go somewhere and see a pregnant lady and then give
