Dear User,
Here is a response from on of our experts, Mr. Noureddine Abderrahim:
M55Z is set for children who were not given any liquid or food during the first three days after they are born other than breast milk. Exclusive breastfeeding is set for children who were not given liquids or foods yet including the first three days of the life of the child.

If you have additional questions, please post again.
Thank you!
