Clients & Families - Breastfeeding Support

WIC recognizes breastfeeding as the ideal nutrition for infants - the best practice is to breastfeed your baby for at least one year. The benefits of breastfeeding for your child include:

  • Developing a unique mother-child bond
  • Protecting your baby from illness
  • Providing the perfect food for your baby
