Let us help you meet your breastfeeding goals
Breastfeeding isn’t always easy, and your WIC office can help. WIC’s breastfeeding experts help mothers breastfeed successfully with lactation consultants, classes, peer counselors, and a statewide hotline.
Take a Class
If possible, try to take a breastfeeding class before your baby comes so you know what to expect. Talk to your doctor, hospital or your local WIC clinic if you need help finding a class. Classes usually cover:
- Different breastfeeding positions
- How to get a good latch
- Feeding patterns
- Baby’s cues and more
