CONCLUSION: We hypothesize that exclusive breastfeeding is not a traditionally recognized practice and thus its duration is mainly associated with information and knowledge about breastfeeding. This suggests that information programmes to provide knowledge, beginning at antenatal visits, may reduce premature complementation, though additional support may also be required.
