Breastfeeding Support

The CCI at WIC team is committed to helping families have positive, successful breastfeeding experiences. Participants can receive breastfeeding education and support through the Breastfeeding Peer Counselor Program.

Breastfeeding is the normal way to feed your baby. Your milk has all the ingredients in the right amounts to give your baby a healthy start and include many benefits such as:

  • Protecting babies from infections and illnesses, including diarrhea, ear infections, and pneumonia.
  • Reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
  • Decreasing risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
  • And breastfed children are less likely to become obese and/or develop asthma.
