The study indicates that there are a variety of improper feeding activities and awareness among mothers. Therefore, all health care professionals and mothers ought to be improved and sensitized. Intervention and further study should pay attention to considerations such as cultural patterns, barriers and the usage of health care services and infant feeding education. Awareness alone does not decide effective breast-feeding activities, sensitization of the health care worker and infrastructural improvements are required for early breast-feeding, including in hospital settings. And if all the children were breastfed, there was no awareness and experience. Efforts need to be made to help the mother start feeding early, particularly in the Caesarean section.
