Geographic coverage: England

Time coverage: 2008/09 to 2009/10

Type of data: Administrative data

Notes: Four data lines would be collected; 1 – No of infants due for 6 – 8 weeks check in each quarter at which feeding status is recorded; 2 – No of children recorded as being only breastfed at 6 weeks – 8 weeks; 3 – No of children recorded as NOT being breastfed at 6 – 8 weeks; 4 – The number of children recorded as receiving both breast milk and infant formula. Four lines would be collected to assess the quality of the data received and to calculate the prevalence of exclusive breastfeeding (for DH policy needs) and any breastfeeding at 6-8 weeks.

Guidelines: Good performance is typified by increasing percentage.
