Clinical Trial Summary

Paternal involvement in breastfeeding has been identified as a significant predictor in maternal breastfeeding outcomes. The main aim of this study is to examine the relationship between reported paternal breastfeeding support and paternal-infant attachment with exclusive breastfeeding and total breastfeeding duration. The hypothesis is that paternal involvement in breastfeeding increase exclusive breastfeeding rates, total breastfeeding duration and strengthen paternal-infant attachment.

Clinical Trial Description

Initiation, duration and exclusivity of breastfeeding are greatly influenced by paternal involvement in breastfeeding. Previous studies showed that fathers who are involved in the breastfeeding process have stronger attachments with their babies. However, research on fathers' involvement in their partners' breastfeeding is lacking and there are no comprehensive studies conducted on the effects of the paternal involvement and infant attachment on exclusive breastfeeding (EB) and total breastfeeding duration. Therefore, the aim of the study is to examine the relationship between fathers reported breastfeeding support and paternal-infant attachment with exclusive breastfeeding and total breastfeeding duration. Data will be collected from a tertiary university hospital. The study will be conducted in two phases. In the first phase, the researcher will approach healthy, term, one month old babies and their fathers who fulfilled the eligibility criteria and will invite them to participate in the study. Informed consent will be obtained from participating fathers. The Partner Breastfeeding Influence scale will be used to measure fathers' involvement in their partner's breastfeeding, Paternal-infant attachment, paternal depression, and marital adjustment will be measured with Paternal-Infant Attachment Questionnaire, Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Scale and Marital Adjustment Scale respectively. Four sets of questionnaires will be administered at two time points for the study. The first set will be administered at postpartum first month. The second set of data will be collected at postpartum six months. In the second phase, fathers participating in the study will be interviewed for breastfeeding duration and factors associated with cessation will be explored at postpartum 12 and 24 months. ;
