                • Researchers examined the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding during the rainy season
                • Stopping exclusive breastfeeding was linked to a disease that limits child growth
                • Findings could be used in advocacy efforts to promote breastfeeding

                Breastfeeding infants continuously for six months during the rainy season, without including any other foods, may help prevent a disease linked to micronutrient deficiencies, a study suggests.
