Abstract
Introduction: Premature infants are defined as neonates born before 37 weeks gestational age a newborn infant, or neonate, is a baby under 28 days of age. During these first 28 days of life, the baby is at highest risk of dying. It is thus crucial that appropriate feeding and care are provided during this period, both to improve the infant’s chances of survival and to lay the foundations for a healthy life Problem statement a comparative study to assess the effect of feeding performance on cheek stimulation versus lip stimulation among the preterm babies in selected hospitals
Materials and Methods Research Approach: quantitative-qualitative integrated approach. Research Design was used quasi experimental two group pretest-posttest experimental Research design. The General Systems Theory was used for the study which is developed by Ludwig Von Bertalanffy. The setting for this study was the selected hospitals in PCMC, Pune. Non Probability Convenience Sampling Technique was used for 60sample the tool developed which includes section 1= the demographic variables section 2= Deals with modified Brazeltone scale in that total 12 observations included in tool. Tool validity was done and tool found reliable. Study found feasible after pilot study.
Results: It has been observed that effect of feeding performance of preterm babies before lip stimulations pretest mean score is 9.7 and after given lip stimulations mean score is 11.6. This indicates that after stimulations average score rises to 11.6 respectively. It has been observed that effect of feeding performance of preterm babies before cheek stimulations pretest mean score is 10.8 and after given cheek stimulations means score was 9.7. This indicates that after cheek stimulations mean score was decreased. After comparison cheek & lip stimulation p-value not significant (less than 0.05) hypothesis is rejected.
Conclusion: It has been observed that pretest knowledge average mean score is 11.6 and practice score is 7.8 after stimulation average score rises to 11.6 respectively. This indicates that the knowledge and practice grades improved after stimulation. After comparison cheek & lip stimulation p-value not significant (less than 0.05) hypothesis is rejected.
