baby formula

Breastfeeding is highly recommended by doctors as well as the federal government for newborns as their source of nourishment because aside from it is free of cost, mother's milk is known to be the best nutrition for growing infants. Breastfeeding helps you save up to $2,000 a year on formula costs.

However, not all mothers are able to feed their newborns through their breasts for various reasons. That is when baby formula is introduced to the infant that contains the same nutrients as the mother's milk.

A new press was released about a federal agency called WIC whose aiming of providing food, nutrition counseling, and access to health services to low-income women, infants, and children, has introduced a new food package that encourages breastfeeding. It is a new program, mandated for all states, reallocates funding for all currently provided foods, including infant formula, baby foods, juices, and fresh fruits and vegetables. For women selected the breastfeeding package, they will not receive any infant formula.

For those who partially breastfeed or formula feed, they are going to receive 13 percent less formula than was afforded in previous years. This would only mean that parents who had most of their formula paid for by WIC before may now have to purchase regular-formula on their own which I think is just fair.
