Question: Importance of exclusive breast milk feeding

Would it be possible to help us understand the importance of measuring exclusive breast milk feeding through performance improvement?

Exclusive breast milk feeding for the first 6 months of neonatal life has long been the expressed goal of World Health Organization (WHO), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). ACOG has recently reiterated its position. Healthy People 2010 and the CDC have also been active in promoting this goal.
