Projected and observed exclusive breastfeeding for age groups 12–13 to 34–35 months of age, with reference lines of 10% (short dashes) and 1% (long dashes) prevalence in AfrE. Low but non-zero observed rates of exclusive breastfeeding throughout second and third year of childhood in AfrE, with persistent rates of about 1%, show limitations of 24-hour recall. This pattern is also typical for AmrB, AmrD, SearB and SearD (EmrB had no observations of exclusive breastfeeding during the second and third year of childhood).
