The SUN Movement supports the inclusion of these indicators to measure breastfeeding counseling and support coverage at 3 critical time points. As coverage data for this intervention does not yet exist in most national information systems, it is important to contribute to policy and programme decision making in SUN countries where there is a commitment to promote, protect and support breastfeeding, specifically exclusive breastfeeding in the first six months of a child's life.

We recommend focusing on indicator #3 and #5 to provide a better understanding on the "quality" of the service provided.
