... milk and hindmilk balance with defecation patterns of infants who received exclusive. The study design was cross sectional, with total sample 30 mothers who had infants aged 1-6 months and exclusively. The results showed the majority (96.7%) frequency of defecation of infants 1-8 times, consistency of soft stool (96.7%) and yellow stool (93.3%). Out of 30 respondents 53.33% of mothers had a balance of foremilk and hindmilk while breastfeeding and 86.66% of infants had normal defecation patterns. Chi-square test results did not influence the balance of foremilk and hindmilk with the pattern of defecation with 30 respondents surveyed.
