I know how it is to be in need at times. I was lucky to have someone give me free diapers off of mamasource and she said pay it forward. I absolutly love that term. So now it is my turn to pay it forward.

I have a son who is soon to turn one and is already on milk. He has acid reflux when he was born and had to be on Nutramigen. Luckily I did qualify for WIC since it was so expensive. But I have sooo much left over. I asked the doctors office if they will take it and said no. WIC will not take it back. They suggested donating it. I have 23 cans of it and do not want it to go to waste. I would really like it to go to someone in need of it that will use it. So if you, or someone you know can use it, please send me a little about why you feel you need it or the person who needs it. I do not feel it fair for it to go to the first person to respond cause there is quite a few of us in need at this time of year. I know first hand cause my son turns one right before christmas this month. So please feel free to send me any information. I live in north phoenix off of the 101 and 7th ave. But will travel or meet half way. Happy Holidays

What can I do next?

I'm sorry that I don't know anyone. But I think that it is a wonderful thing for you to do and I hope it goes to someone in need. If you don't find someone, Casas de los Ninos or AVIVA children's services can take it.

If you need an alternate place, there is a place called Child Crisis Center in Mesa that I've donated a ton of stuff too. Here is their link. http://www.childcrisis.org/ At the bottom of the page it looks like they are having a "baby shower" right now too.

I think it's awesome that you are doing this...I'm a single mom to a 2 year old boy whose father just stopped sending child support. My son is allergic to milk and has been on Nutramigen since he was 3 months old. This would be such a blessing to me and my son. Thank you.

Hello, my name is S.. I read your article and I think that it is awesome that you want to pay it forward. I actually just watched that movie a few days ago with my son. I am a single mother of 2 boys and know of so many families in need this year. I believe that we should all pay it forward everyday, there is something each of us can do to help someone else. Life has an amazing way of giving back to those that are generous to help others. So, in regards to the formula that you would like to give away, I know of a couple that just had a baby girl 3 weeks ago. The mother had a c-section and is unable to work and the father has been laid off and unable to find work. They have been trying to get assistance, but it is taking a long time. I have given them several cans of formula, for when I go to doctor I get Nutramigen too. However, my newborn son drinks the soy formula. I feel that this would help them out a great deal. Right now, I know that the house they are renting is being sold. So, I know soon they will have to move and don't know where they are going to go. I am sure that you are getting a lot of responses and I feel that whoever you choose to pay it forward to that they will do the same for others. Thank you for this opportunity to share this with you. And Thank you for your generous heart to pay it forward. God Bless you and have a great holiday.
