Breast is Best!

Research has shown that there is no better food than breast milk for the baby's first year of life. We are excited that you are interested in breast-feeding! Breastfeeding provides many health, nutritional, economic, and emotional benefits to the mother and baby. There are also significant benefits to the community, workplace and the environment.

WIC mothers choosing to breastfeed will be provided with information through one on one counseling, along with education materials to support their healthy decision. Mothers who exclusively breastfeed may receive enhanced food packages and may be eligible for a breast pump.
