Mostly Breastfeeding Mom and Infant
After the first month of your baby’s life, you can continue to provide only breastmilk – the healthiest choice for you and your baby – or you can choose to combine breastfeeding with formula feeding.
You may not need all of the formula you receive. Please use only as much formula as you need, and only when you and your baby are not together or when you cannot provide your pumped milk. Every ounce of your breastmilk counts when it comes to your baby’s health and your health as well.
As a WIC mom, you are also eligible to receive breastfeeding support.
