The sample in this study was mothers aged <20 years who had babies aged 6-24 months in Karangmojo, Semanu, Semin, Gunung Kidul Regency in 2019. Minimal sample calculation by Lemeshow was 45 respondents.  Data collected by a structured questionnaire. Data analysis involved univariate, bivariate analysis using the chi-square test and fisher's exact test, while multivariate analysis used logistic regression. The results showed that 75.5% of adolescent mothers aged <20 years old practice exclusive breastfeeding. Bivariate analysis showed that  occupational factors (p-value = 0.001), parity (p-value = 0.001), pregnancy status (p-value = 0.010), family support (p-value = 0.002) and husband support (p-value = 0.003) were correlated to exclusive breastfeeding.
