It is best recommended for infant babies as it offers them the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. Most mothers, especially the uneducated in rural communities lack a good breastfeeding approach while others deliberately neglect the practice. This study was focused on exclusive breastfeeding and health benefits of newborns in Isobor, Obubra Local Government Area, Cross River State, Nigeria, West Africa. To achieve this objective, three research questions were formulated to guide the study. The instrument used was a structured questionnaire to gather Data from 120 respondents which include nursing mothers and infants from the sample communities.
