Abstract

Adequate knowledge on exclusive breastfeeding is a central implement that navigates the course of breastfeeding stability and distinctiveness amongst mothers. Insufficient and defective information with absence of support throughout this practice leads to immature cessation of breastfeeding. Primigravida are a vulnerable group with approximately more than half of the percentage of early breastfeeding dropouts being primiparous who are deficient of involvement and dependable intelligence of exclusive breastfeeding compared to multiparas. Empirical evidence suggests breastfeeding, particularly prolonged exclusive feeding, and may be associated with a host of positive health outcomes for mother and infant/child
