The infant morbidity rate is the second indicator in determining the child's health status because it is a reflection of the baby's weak immune system. This is influenced by nutritional factors, socio-economic factors and demographics. Breastfeeding is related to the fulfillment of infant nutrition. Almost all babies in Indonesia (96%) have received breast milk but the infant mortality and morbidity rate is still high. It was found that the duration of breastfeeding greatly affects the survival of the baby, which is related to the imbalance of nutrients the baby gets while breastfeeding. The imbalance between the foremilk and hindmilk can cause problems for the baby such as discomfort and pain. Babies can become fussy, the consistency of the stool becomes watery, green and foamy, spit up, bloating and even diarrhea in babies. This research is descriptive in nature. The objective of this research is to describe the balance of foremilk and hindmilk of breast milk in breastfeeding mothers. The population in this study were all mothers who exclusively breastfed who had babies aged 1-12 months in the working area of the Kenali Besar Community Health Center.
