I hear so many times where WIC is so pro ABM and more or less anti-BFing...but:
The WIC office I go to is just the opposite!!! First of all, the bfing class I went to while I was pregnant was taught by a woman nursing her toddler....she talked about how women should nurse past a year and as long as mutualy desired (preferrable child led weaning)
Then, this opportunity comes up for me (and any other mother who has succesfully bf'd for 9+mo) to become a peer counselor, the program is sponsored by LLL, it is a 6 week course and all the materials are provided for us including one expensive "the breastfeeding answer book" which btw is VERY heavy!!! :LOL
anyway, so at the meeting there were a bunch of AP mamas there..all talking about using slings, co-sleeping, no vaxing, EBF, and cloth diapers. They (the directors of the meeting) also said that our WIC office is going to start a nursing mother's tea...where one day a week nursing mothers and their babies and toddlers can come, have tea and chat with other moms....cool huh?!?
I was pretty impressed!!!! Yeah for them!!!!
