[Correspondence] Breastfeeding in the 21st century

The breastfeeding Series papers by Cesar Victora and colleagues1 and Nigel Rollins and colleagues2 are a notable contribution to the maternal and child nutrition field. Both papers comment that the World Health Assembly’s target aiming to increase the rate of exclusive breastfeeding globally in the first 6 months up to 50% by 2025 is achievable, if not unambitious.3 However, the flaws of the target indicator itself were not addressed.
