Abstract [en]

Background: Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) or Kangaroo care is a method where a naked infant is placed skin to skin on a parent's bare chest. The method was initiated in the 1970s and several studies have shown that it has positive effects on child health and development.

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether KMC can help to promote exclusive breastfeeding and to promote a positive attachment between mother and child.

Method: Article Search in PubMed and CINHAL. The keywords used were Kangaroo Mother Care, breast-feeding, and attachment. The selection was limited by a number of criteria. In addition, a review template was used to assess the quality of the articles.

Results: Six articles were relevant to the purpose of the study. Overall, there is some evidence that KMC can help to promote exclusive breastfeeding and a positive relationship between mother and child, but there were also some papers that could not show this. The results may be influenced by the chosen method, sample size of the groups, composition and duration of the intervention.

Conclusion: This study provides no clear answer to the question of what effect KMC has on exclusive breastfeeding and attachment between mother-child, but overall results still point towards that KMC can help to promote exclusive breastfeeding and a positive relationship between mother and child. However, it is a small study, so a larger study needs to be done to verify this result.
