This Guide is based on the results of the infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices study using Trials of Improved Practices (TIPs) methodology. TIPs was part of a larger study examining factors associated with the rise in stunting levels in Lower Egypt in comparison to Upper Egypt. To understand barriers and facilitating factors to optimal IYCF, the study explored and identified current feeding practices, problems, and factors facilitating optimal practices based on interviews with mothers and feedback from mothers when they tried new IYCF practices. This information was used to develop the counseling guide, which is tailored to the Egyptian cultural context.
