Re: I need some help here...

Jessica,
I don't know what WIC offices are like anywhere else, but my WIC office has been wonderfully supportive of breastfeeding. The lady that runs the program here gave me all kinds of bf'ing advice and they gave me a new dual electric pump. Never once did they try to offer formula at all, they just made it seem like bf'ing is the norm and there wasn't any other alternative. It's sad that not all WIC clinics are that way.
I think it's wonderful what you are doing, and your enthusiasm is so refreshing. You are going to make a big difference in peoples lives. Just think of all the happy healthy babies that are going to be thriving on their mama's milk, and all the mamas that learn to sucessfully breastfeed because of your encouragement. Bless you!
