Introduction: Early and exclusive breastfeeding is very important for a child's survival, and to protect them from various diseases to which they are susceptible and which can be fatal, such as diarrhea and pneumonia. Increasing evidence shows that children who receive breast milk have higher intelligence test results. In addition, they have a lower likelihood of being obese or overweight, as well as their susceptibility to developing diabetes later. Globally, increased breastfeeding can save more than 820,000 children each year and prevent additional cases of breast cancer in women up to 20,000 cases per year. This study aims to determine the effect of Knowledge, Husband Support, and Stress Levels of Working Mothers on Exclusive Breastfeeding at the Tunjung Teja Health Center in 2022.
