I was able to create exclusive breastfeeding variable, which matched with the value reported in the DHS manual for the country am working on, however, i am getting results(when i cross tabulate exclusive breast feeding variable with M38 and M55Z) that shows that a small proportion of infants who were exclusively breastfeed also drank from a bottle with nipple(M38)and am also getting figures indicating that some of the exclusive breast fed infants were given something(M55Z) first 3 day before milk flowed. Could the variable i created exclusive breast feeding be wrong even if its matching with the figure reported in the DHS country report or were the small proportion of infants given expressed breast milk in a bottle with nipple(M38) and if they were given something before milk flowed(M55Z), how can i explain that they were exclusively breast fed. Thanks.
