Mississippi Participant Testimonial 2018

“A working mom, who was issued a pump and car adapter, was really concerned that she wasn’t giving enough milk to her baby and the baby wasn’t gaining properly. The WIC peer counselor talked to her about how much weight gain we want to see in breastfed babies and offered to do a weight check. The baby had gained very well since the last doctor’s visit. The mom was so glad the peer counselor understood her fears and said she felt so much better.” — WIC Participant, Mississippi
