Is the E in EBF "Expressed" or "Exclusive". I always thought the former, but a, now getting quite confused when I read some people's posts - does it actually mean "Exclusive" instead?

I always thought it was exclusively. (It's what the health visitors put in the red book) .
Expressed is ebm, (expressed breast milk)

Or at least that's what I've always thought.

Yes it means exclusive it can also be use to mean extended ie feeding an older toddler/pre school age child tho i prefer to think of it as natural term bfeeding rather than extended bfeeding as extended makes it sound as tho its unusual/not normal to do when infact it is the biological norm.

And yes ebm is expressed breast milk smile

Thank you very much - it must have been EBM that made me think it was "expressed".

Now I willbe considerably less confused when I read posts smile
