Breastfeeding Promotion and Support 

Breastfeeding promotion and support are integral parts of the Santa Rosa County WIC program. WIC is striving to increase the incidence and duration of breastfeeding among women enrolled in our program.

Our agency has trained personnel who are ready to assist mothers in making informed decisions about their feeding choice for their child while instructing them in the basics of breastfeeding. In addition, our agency can provide breastfeeding aids such as breast pumps.

A special WIC food package is also available for participants who are exclusively breastfeeding their babies. This food package includes:

  • canned tuna fish or pink salmon
  • additional amounts of:
    • cheese
    • milk
    • eggs
    • juice
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the WIC office's Milton location.
