Breastfeeding Promotion and Support
Breastfeeding offers many health benefits for both you and your baby. Mom’s milk is easy to digest and it is your baby’s first immunization. Mom’s milk helps to protect babies from the start against asthma, infections, allergies and obesity as they grow. Because breastfed babies become healthier children and adults, mom’s milk is your special gift to your baby.
WIC mom’s can call the WIC Breastfeeding Helpline at 610-497-7664 with breastfeeding questions and support.
