Exclusive breastfeeding is a method of providing only breast milk to the infants up to 6 months age. There are lots of intrinsic and extrinsic factors which affects breast feeding. The prevalence rate of exclusive breast feeding is too low at global level. In India prevalence rate of EBF is 54.9 %. The EBF is effective in decline the incidence of communicable and noncommunicable diseases among the infants which reduce morbidity and mortality among infants.
