WIC Breastfeeding Education
 
WIC provides breastfeeding education and support to mothers enrolled in the program because breast milk is good for your baby’s health.  It reduces allergies, colds, ear infections, and other health problems.  It also boosts your baby’s immune system, protecting him or her from illnesses.
 
In addition, mothers who breastfeed can stay in the WIC program longer.  WIC offers breastfeeding classes, peer counselors, support groups, and Board Certified lactation consultants for complex breastfeeding issues.
