  1. Outcome variable: high breastfeeding initiation (intermediate solution)
  2. Note 1: The intermediate solution makes only basic, or “easy” assumptions about remainders. It is the mostly commonly used solution in fsQCA [44]
  3. Note 2: the tilde (~) symbol before a variable indicates that there is low adherence to that particular variable
  4. Note 3: The asterisk symbol (*) means "the combination of" the associated conditions
