My Experience as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor

Growing up I have many memories of my mother going to the local health department when we lived in Long Beach and our family receiving WIC services. The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) is a federal assistance program of the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for healthcare and nutrition of low-income pregnant women, breastfeeding women, and infants and children under the age of five. (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WIC).

When I found out I was pregnant with our first in 2011, signing up for WIC was one of the first things I did. Although my husband and I, actually boyfriend at the time, were together, we were not legally married. He had a steady part-time job, and I had a minimum wage job working at a local grocery store. Both first-time parents, there was a lot we had to learn and figure out. Thankfully my mother urged me to sign up for WIC. And it was one of the best things that I would ever do.

Celebrating 6 Years With a Huge Cloth Diaper Giveaway

@Chgdiapers anniversary #clothdiapers #giveaway

Post contains affiliate links. 6 years ago I sat down and pecked out the first few posts on Change-Diapers (then hosted on Blogspot). I had switched my middle child to cloth diapers and was having a hard time finding all of the information. Bits here, pieces there and lots of contradictions. I was far from an expert but hoped that sharing my journey would help others in the same position. I jokingly say that you can find a “cloth diaper blogger” on every street corner now days but that wasn’t the case in 2009!

Here I am 6 years later, still blogging and having cloth diapered two children during that time. Earlier this year I bid on a package Cottonbabies contributed to a charity auction and won. I tucked away the solid colors to use as prizes and saved the Jules print for this! I’m not sure if Jules is still anyone’s unicorn but one of you will win a Bumgenuis 4.0 in Jules print from me and lots of great sponsors are offering prizes as well!
