Breastfeeding promotion is an integral part of the WIC program.
Our goal is to promote and support breastfeeding statewide.
- Mothers who breastfeed may be eligible to receive WIC benefits longer than non-breastfeeding mothers.
- Mothers who exclusively breastfeed their infants will receive an enhanced food package.
- Mothers who breastfeed may be eligible to receive breast pumps to help support their breastfeeding.
- Mothers who breastfeed may receive follow-up support through International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) or breastfeeding peer counselors where available.
