Breastfeeding Your Way

Know the facts to help you decide: Formula has the basic ingredients for growing babies, but breastmilk has more than that! Breastmilk helps protect baby from allergies and reduces their chances of getting sick. Breastfeeding saves money, time and the environment! It’s always ready and safe when your baby is hungry. Breastfeeding also reduces your own risk of chronic diseases, breast and ovarian cancers.

Learn more about breastfeeding to see if it’s right for you: Ask WIC staff how milk is made and how to be successful from the start. Attend a breastfeeding class. Connect with a WIC breastfeeding peer counselor. Talk to friends and family that have breastfed their babies.

Set a goal and a plan to reach it: Each family is unique. WIC can help you meet your breastfeeding goals. Doctors recommend exclusively breastfeeding infants for 1 year or longer as mutually desired by mother and infant.* If you are returning to work or school, WIC can help you get the information and supplies you need to be successful with pumping.
