Just a week before the city of Los Angeles opened a lactation room in City Hall for nursing mothers, dozens of women and mothers from seven WIC centers walked last Wednesday to promote breast-feeding’s multiple benefits for infants. The walkers above are from the Compton center. Walks also took place in Huntington Park, Lynwood, Paramount, South Gate, Bell Gardens and Cudahy. The walks were among many held throughout the country during August, National Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The WIC Supplemental Nutrition Program of the California Department of Health Services says compared to a mother’s breast milk, formula is missing many things babies need to be strong, healthy and smart.
