Using kangaroo care in a clinical setting with fullterm infants having breastfeeding difficulties.
MCN Am J Matern Child Nurs. 1999 Jul-Aug; 24(4):190-2.MA

Abstract

Usually Kangaroo Care (KC) or skin-to-skin holding care is done with preterm infants. This article, however, documents clinical experiences with three mothers and their fullterm infants who were having latching/breastfeeding difficulties. In each case the nurse placed the fullterm infant in KC for approximately 1 hour prior to and continuing into the next breastfeeding session. Although no recommendations can be made based on case studies, these clinical experiences suggest that KC is a worthwhile intervention to try when a mother and her fullterm infant are struggling to achieve successful breastfeeding.
