Kangaroo (skin-to-skin contact, SSC) care has been documented to stabilize infant physiology (i.e. breathing patterns and temperature). However, no information is avaliable on infant temperature during breastfeeding (BF) in SSC. Hospital staff often express concern that infants will become cold during SSC. Thus, this study was done to determine infant temperature during BF in SSC. Conceptual framework: Anderson Mutual Caregiving Model. Subjects: Mothers and their healthy fullterm newborn infants experiencing BF difficulty at 12-18 hours postbirth Method: Pretest-test-posttest one-group design. Results: Temporal scannerTM (Exergen Corp., Watertown, WA) was used to measure temperature. At 30 minutes into the 1st breastfeeding with SSC (SB) (T2 SB1), 16 infants were breastfeeding at that time. At 30 minutes into the 2nd SB (T2 SB2), 14 BF infants were breastfeeding at that time. Temperature (mean and SD) during SB sessions T1 SB1 T2 SB1 T3 SB1 T1 SB2 T2 SB2 T3 SB2 N=32 36.7±.4 36.8±.2 36.8±.5 36.8±.3 36.8±.2 36.9±.2 N=16 36.6±.3 36.8±.2 36.8±.3 N=14 36.8±.3 36.8±.2 36.9±.2 Conclusion: Temperatures remained within clinically accepted range for healthy fullterm newborn infants being BF in SSC. These results can be used to reassure hospital staff and parents that newborn infants can be safely breastfed in SSC. A randomized trial is recommended to provide more definitive data.
