The kangaroo care provides the skin-to-skin contact during which a premature infant wearing a diaper and a hat is placed on its mother's chest. This study was performed to investigate the effect of kangaroo care on stress and perception of the newborn in mothers of premature infants. The subject were 30 mothers of premature infants(experimental group:16, control group:14),whose infants hospitalized in an NICU. For the experimental group, the kangaroo care was applied 9 times during the twenty six days with 40 minutes for each session. The questionnaire, stress and perception of the newborn were completed before beginning the first intervention and at discharging hospital. There was no significant difference in stress between the experimental group and the control group. Twenty five percent of experimental mothers rated their infants as better than the average newborn before beginning the first intervention. But 50% of experimental mothers rated their infants as better than the average newborn at discharging hospital. These result suggest that kangaroo care is useful for mothers of premature infants in positively perceiving their infants.
