Purpose: To develop and examine the effect of a breastfeeding educational program based on educational strategies from Banduar's Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) on breastfeeding outcomes for mothers of preterm infants. Design: Experiemental. Subjects: Sixty mother-preterm infant dyad. Theoretical Framework: Bandura's Social cognitive Theory provided the theoretical framework. The educational program was designed and implemented using educational strategies from Bandura's SCT. Molding, verbal persuasion, reinforcement, vicarious experience, and Self-monitoring/self-regulation were the main constructs. Methods: A convenience sample of 60 mother-preterm infant dyad were randomly assigned to either intervention or control group. A five-session educational program using educational strategies from Bandura SCT including modeling, verbal persuasion, reinforcement, vicarious experience, and Self-monitoring/self-regulation was given to the intervention group. Control group followed the routine care in the NICU. Both groups were followed up for three months on weekly basis during the first month then on monthly basis. A pretest was given to both groups and repeated after a month. An observational checklist was used to evaluate mother's breastfeeding skills progress. A breastfeeding diary was given to the mothers on discharge for self-monitoring. Results/data analysis: Descriptive statistices and analysis of variance were used for data analysis. The results indicated that breastfeeding educational program improved breastfeeding outcomes among intervention group. Mothers in the intervention group showed a significant improvement in their breastfeeding skills e.g. breast message, pumping technique, and used correct breastfeeding positioning and technique based on observational checklist. Exclusive breastfeeding was higher among intervention group. They also breastfeed longer and had fewer breastfeeding problems during the follow up period. Conclusion: The breastfeeding educational program based on educational strategies from Bandura SCT was effective in improving breastfeeding outcomes among mothers of preterm infants.
