For Table 7.2 (Breastfeeding status by age) in the Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2022 Key Indicators Report, does the "Breastfeeding and consuming other milk" category include consumption of infant formula--or is infant formula consumption subsumed under another category?

Following is a response from DHS Senior Nutrition Research Lead, Rukundo Benedict:

The Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2022 Key Indicators Report, uses the latest IYCF definitions from the WHO-UNICEF 2021 infant and young child feeding guidelines: https://www.who.int/publications/i/item/978924001838.

In table 7.2 the "Breastfeeding and consuming other milk" category is defined as children fed breast milk plus animal milk, and/or infant formula, and/or animal milk-based yogurt drinks.
