Regional differences continue to occur, but China's breastfeeding regulations are still not up to scratch. Nevertheless, there aren't many disaggregated statistics available for several provinces. With the use of a representative survey, the prevalence of breastfeeding and the factors affecting breastfeeding practises in Shanghai were evaluated. According on the World Health Organization's parameters for assessing infant and early child feeding practises, the questionnaire was developed. A total of two year olds and younger were investigated, and among them were infants less than six months 60.3% of infants less than six months were exclusively breastfed, according to the statistics. According to the findings of the univariate regression analysis, the rate was influenced by a number of factors, including those related to an individual's characteristics, their socioeconomic situation, and their career.

Saudi Arabia is one country in the Gulf of Arabia that has a poor grasp of the contraceptive usage profile. In Jazan, Saudi Arabia, the current study aimed to assess the knowledge, attitudes, and practises of women of reproductive age about the use of contraceptives. For an observational, analytical cross-sectional study in the city of Jazan, 450 women were recruited at random. The data were acquired through in-person interviews with women using a questionnaire that inquired about the women's opinions, practises, and understanding of contraceptive methods. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics techniques using the SPSS programme. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistical approaches utilising the programme. Depending on the age group, occupation, and number of children. ever born, the total number of pregnancies, and the percentage of women who had ever used birth control were all significantly different. On the other hand, a sizable portion of respondents stated that they would like to use contraception in the future. By age group and degree of work, there were significant differences. When asked why they used contraceptives, those who said that they did so to space out their children and improve the health of their offspring cited pills and intrauterine devices as the most popular and practical methods of contraception.
