Exclusive breastfeeding provides short-term and long-term benefits for infants and mothers. Promotional efforts through various media on the importance of exclusive breastfeeding are still being carried out and the program achievements keep increasing. The number of breastfeeding mothers in Indonesia has declined even though exclusive breastfeeding has many advantages. Indonesian mothers tend to choose to give baby formula to their babies. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of husband’s support on working mothers on exclusive breastfeeding. This study employed five stages for scoping review. The five stages included: identifying research questions, identifying relevant literature, selecting literature, mapping data, compiling, summarizing and reporting results. Ten journals were gathered and then analyzed in the form of scoping reviews by classifying the main points in three themes emerged: about husband’s support for the success of exclusive breastfeeding on working mothers, the success of exclusive breastfeeding in working mothers and exclusive breastfeeding. The success of giving exclusive breastfeeding to working mothers is greatly supported by workplaces, husbands, families and information about exclusive breastfeeding from providers to husbands and families who will achieve success in exclusive breastfeeding. Working mothers should be given additional policies on maternity leave to achieve more in exclusive breastfeeding, provision of special facilities for breastfeeding or breast milking (breast milk), refrigeration for breast milk storage, internal regulation that supports the success of exclusive breastfeeding programs, provision of trained personnel for breastfeeding according to the mandate of the exclusive breastfeeding government regulation, and the need for strict sanctions for workplaces that do not support exclusive breastfeeding.
