Dear Bridgette,
Thank you so much for your response. It has been helpful. The reason why I needed the practices to total to 100 is that, I understand that these breastfeeding practices were extracted from the same population. For example, if we try to look at bottle feeding,predominant,exclusive breastfeeding and complementary feeding for 0-5 months, we find that it was extracted from the same population of 1656 yet when we try to combine these practices the total is about 101.4.So I guess my confusion was if the 'other milk' category as well as some components of complementary feeding and predominant feeding be the closest thing to bottle feeding. So I just wanted to be sure before I run a logistic regression with bottle feeding which happens to be one of the main outcomes(dependent variable).

Thanks,
Rose
