One-year-old Daniel Selman, playing with his mother at the Summersville WIC office, was not sick at all his first year. Breastfed babies get sick less than formula-fed babies, research says. "He's so healthy, I can't help but think that's it," Webster County mother Susan Selman said.
Sarah Selman stops by the WIC office for "mom conversation." Like all staffers, lab assistant Kay Groves is trained as a peer counselor, for helpful mom-to-mom talks.
After a year of mom's milk only, Daniel Selman is starting to eat other foods. "He's off to a good start," Sarah Selman said. "It's been a wonderful experience."
