Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with mothers of (a representative sample of) children aged 12-23 months:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: Can you please tell me the age of your youngest children?
1) the youngest child: .... (specify in months)
2) 2nd youngest child: .... (specify in months; cross the answer if the respondent has one child only)
(ask the next question only about a child aged 12-23 months, if available)
Q2: Yesterday, during the day or at night, was [baby's name] given any breast milk?
A2: yes / no
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of children aged 12-23 months who were breastfed during the previous day or night by the total number of surveyed children aged 12-23 months. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage. Please note that breastfeeding by a wet nurse and feeding of expressed breast milk both count as being fed breast milk.
