Breastfeeding


Breastfeeding is part of the natural bond between a mother and her baby. This bond begins at conception and goes beyond birth. Breastfeeding is the best food you can give your baby.

 

The California WIC Program promotes, supports and protects exclusive breastfeeding for approximately the first six months of life, and continued breastfeeding for at least the first year.
