The coverage of exclusive breastfeeding in Mampang Prapatan Public Health Center was still low. Meanwhile, education about exclusive breastfeeding to the community should continue to be done because it can provide important information for prospective mothers and families. Then conducted a study to determine the support of health workers to exclusive breastfeeding on the mother of the baby aged 0-5 months 29 days in Posyandu Mampang Prapatan Public Health Center. This cross sectional study was conducted on 250 infant mothers enrolled at Posyandu who were interviewed using structured questionnaire in November-December 2017. Based on data analysis with multiple cox regression, it was found that the opportunity of maternal group that get good health support to give exclusive breastfeeding is 1,547 (95% CI 1.023-2,339) times bigger than those group of mothers who get less support from health worker. It can be concluded that if the mothers get 4 or more of 5 treatments such as breastfeeding counseling during ANC, early breastfeeding initiation, treated together with baby, the baby is not given any food and drink other than breastmilk during the treatment period, and the mother has got counseling, the possibility to give exclusive breastfeeding greater than mothers who only get 0-3 of these treatments. It was expected that health providers can establish policies related to lactation management services.
