Breastfeeding Success Story: The Moms of Saline County, KS WIC 2

Breastfeeding Success Story: Arin from Saline County, KS WIC“Being on WIC has helped in more ways than one in our lives. Not only am I able to get all of my nutrients with the items they provide, but so does my daughter. I use all of our items to correlate mealsand it helps me keep up my calories to remain breastfeeding my 1 year old!” – Arin

 

Breastfeeding Success Story: Ashley from Saline County, KS WIC“Being connected with the Saline County WIC office helped me feel better about nursing my daughter! We had our ups and downs and any time I had a question I was able to contact Mona and she was able to advise me of what to do or try to better our situation. We ended up having to fortify my milk because it didn’t have enough calories and she wasn’t gaining weight. I was heartbroken! She is my second child and I was hardly able to nurse my first at all, 6-10 ounces a day was all. Moms let me pour my heart out to her and let me know that was okay! We still nurse and I will pump and fortify 3-4 bottles a day as well. If it wasn’t for the WIC office, I’m not sure we could have gotten through this emotionally or financially! I appreciate everything that they have done for me!” -Ashley

 

Breastfeeding Success Story: Crystal from Saline County, KS WIC“From the first phone call to Mona, she assured me that we would get back on board on what me and my daughter’s breastfeeding goals were. I had recently moved here, was stressed, baby was changing up her schedule and sleeping habits, it meant so much to me that Mona just said let’s bring her in, I’ll weigh her, get to know you and help with any other questions. Our goal is a year! We are 9 months strong ❤️and I Breastfeeding Success Story: Meghan from Saline County, KS WICabsolutely appreciate all the support!!” -Crystal

 

 

“When I had my second child I dreaded going back to work because pumping with my first was so hard! I only had a hand pump and barely made it to my goal of six months and hated ever second of it. Thanks to WIC I was given access to an electric pump and was able to go back to work with confidence!” – Meghan

Breastfeeding Success Story: Dani from Saline County, KS WIC

 

“WIC had helped us so much. We didn’t have a lot of money for food and food was not abundant in our house especially with a new baby. Our little girl wasn’t planned but we made the best of what we had. We are young parents and it was difficult with me not being able to bring a lot of money in. WIC helped me so much. I honestly don’t know where I would be if I wouldn’t have had WIC. I would like to add we are 6 months breastfeeding strong!” -Dani
