Breastfeeding ~ The Best Choice
Breastfeeding protects babies from certain diseases like diabetes and some types of cancer and lowers their risk for obesity, asthma, allergies, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Breastfeeding protects mothers from breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and diabetes. You can see why WIC wants to help you breastfeed for as long as you want!
