WIC participants who are breastfeeding may be eligible to participate in our pump loan program or receive a personal use pump to keep. After an assessment with WIC staff, they will recommend the best pump for your breastfeeding situation. We have many options in order to meet your breastfeeding needs. 


Availability of the listed breast pumps is based on inventory. Not all breast pumps listed are available with the San Bernardino County WIC Program.

Using Your Hands to Express Milk


Manual and electric breast pumps help to stimulate the breasts, but may not release all of the available breast milk. Using a combination of the hands-on pumping technique, hand expression and breast massage will help to remove breast milk successfully.




Bottle Feeding Expressed Breast Milk

When you feed a baby at a comfortable pace, baby can let you know, “I need a break” or “I’m full.” Letting a baby set the pace means less chance of overfeeding, gas, stomach discomfort, and spitting up.
