Thanks to DataDENT for compiling these indicators.

If DHS opts to include these indicators please consider the article on barriers to EBF by Kavle et al. 2017. This article address physical breast problems and perceptions of insufficient breastmilk. Suggest that observation include guidance on correct positioning and latch and consider focusing also on provision of specialized counselling in critical care situations, such as high-risk infants (pre-term, LBW, sick) given the traumatic environment mother is in and distinct challenges with lactation as a result.
