Helping moms meet their breastfeeding goals
The WIC program recommends exclusive breastfeeding up to six months and continued breastfeeding for 1 to 2 years and beyond. Exclusively breastfeeding WIC moms get an enhanced food package, and WIC encourages our health partners to adopt policies and create environments that are supportive of breastfeeding.
WIC wants parents to be informed, confident and comfortable with their infant feeding decisions, and to choose the option that best supports their needs and circumstances.
If breastfeeding is not exclusive, WIC can provide both milk-and soy-based formulas for our clients, and other formulas by prescription and in medically-indicated cases.
