Thankful November, Day 20

November 20, 2013

I'm thankful for government run programs, like WIC
WIC isn't just for low income families, the're a great recourse for breastfeeding as well.
Our local WIC office offers breastfeeding classes, lactation support, and pump rental.
I'm not able to breastfeed Sweet Pea, due to a medication issue.
We happen to be low income, so WIC helps us buy fresh fruits and veggies, and formula for Sweet Pea. 
Starting next month, they'll also be giving us baby food.
However, we're planning on practicing baby led weaning, instead of feeding her purees.
