Here is the Stata code that I used to identify kids in the subpopulation for exclusive breastfeeding (for 0-5 months) and calculate exclusive breastfeeding. It can be used with the br or kr files. Note, I create my own numeric mom ID and start it with a random number like "8" to prevent missing zeros.

gen long momid = ((8000 + v001) * 10000) + (v002 * 100) + v003
by momid (bidx), sort: gen byte lastchild = sum(b5) == 1 & sum(b5[_n - 1]) == 0
gen byte exlbreast_subpop = 1 if (v008 - b3) < 6 & lastchild == 1 & b9 == 0
