The exclusive breastfeeding percentage given to a baby in Indonesia in 2018 was 37%. It was still far away from the WHO’s target that is 50%. The successful breastfeeding does not only belong to a wife’s responsibility but it belongs to husband. This research is aimed at knowing the effect of a husband’s bonding behavior model on the knowledge improvement, the husband’s attitude and bonding behavior to the successful exclusive breastfeeding. This research used an experimental quasi design and was conducted from February up to March 2019. Its samples comprises of 31 respondents in intervening group and 31 respondents in controlling one. The respondents are the husbands having wives whose pregnancy ages range ≥36 weeks in the Regency of Bungo. The data analysis used is the test of McNemar and Chi Square. The intervening is done with husband’s bonding behavior module for the successful exclusive breastfeeding as long as 8 days. The research result showed that the husband’s bonding behavior model is able to significantly improve the knowledge (p<0,0001), attitude (p<0,0001), and husband’s bonding behavior (p<0,0001). There is a meaningful difference found in knowledge, attitude, and behavior of husband’s bonding between kelompok controlling group and intervening one. The husband’s good bonding behavior is meaningfully influential to the successful exclusive breastfeeding.
