ABSTRACT:
A quantitative research study to assess the effectiveness of breast crawl in initiation and maintenance of effective breast feeding among newborns in selected hospital at Kollam. The objectives of the study were to assess the effectiveness of breast crawl in initiation of breast feeding among newborns, to assess the effectiveness of breast crawl in maintenance of effective breast feeding among newborns and to find the association between the breast crawl of new born with the socio demographic variables. A quasi experimental non-equivalent control group design was used for the study. Purposive sampling technique was used to select 60 newborns born by normal vaginal delivery who were alternatively posted as experimental group and control group. The tools were demographic proforma, observation checklist for breast crawl, observation checklist for initiation of breast feeding and observation checklist for maintenance of effective breast feeding. Breast crawl given to the experimental group and assessed the initiation of breast feeding. Routine initiation of breastfeeding given to control group. Continuation of breast feeding was assessed equally in both groups, for six feeds in a day for 3days. The unpaired ‘t’ value was used to assess the effectiveness of breast crawl in initiation of breast feeding. The calculated ‘t’ value, (14.47) was greater than table value, (2.660). Effectiveness of breast crawl in maintenance of effective breast feeding was assessed by using unpaired ‘t’ value. The calculated t value in Day I (8.6551), Day II (18.55) and Day III (19.24) were greater than table value (2.660) at 0.05 level of significance. It concludes that there was effectiveness of breast crawl in initiation and maintenance of effective breast feeding among newborns. There was also progressive increase in the second and third day.
