If you are not nursing you get 9. If nursing I think it is 4-5. Depending on how much you are breasfeeding.

Hi. Well, it's been years since my last son was born. He's 10 now, but as I remember if you are not BF I got something like 24 cans on each wic check. I had enough to make it through most of the month and maybe had to buy a few cans at the end to make it through until I could use the other checks. If you are BF I believe you are able to choose if you want to supplement by doing BF and formula. You won't get as many cans b/c you are mainly BF. If you strictly BF I think you can choose alternative healthy foods such as carrots, tuna, etc with no formula. At least that's how it is in FL where I'm from. I'm sure other states may have different rules. Good Luck.
