Good nutrition is important throughout our lives. It is especially important during infancy and childhood because of its effect on growth and development. Breastmilk is good nutrition. It protects your baby from illness and infection and promotes his brain development. Many of the important ingredients in breastmilk are not found in artificial baby milk.
Breastmilk is very easily digested and changes daily to meet your baby's nutritional needs. It also helps in other ways. Breastfeeding creates a close emotional bond between you and your baby. It improves your baby's oral and facial development. And it lowers your risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and osteoporosis later in life.
By breastfeeding, you are doing something that only you can do for your baby.
Congratulations on giving your baby the best!
Breastfeeding is encouraged and supported as the natural and best method of infant feeding for every mother and baby. FSIP WIC program offers Prenatal Education and provides help to all new mothers to make an informed feeding choice after delivery. Our WIC program also offers free services of a Lactation Consultant and Breastfeeding Peer Counselors are provided. Along with breastfeeding counseling we offer manual or electric pumps for mothers returning to work, school etc. Breastfeeding mothers receive an enhanced food package as well as an extended eligibility for program benefits.
