dc.description.abstractKangaroo mother care is becoming an integral part of the care of low birth weight infants worldwide. It provides economic savings to families and health care facilities52 and many physiologic5 and psychobehavioral55 benefits to mothers and infants, the most important of which is the promotion of successful breastfeeding. The benefits of breastfeeding, of human milk over formula, and of feeding from the breast per se, are beyond dispute, and so KMC should be actively promoted. The full impact of KMC on breastfeeding low birth weight infants is yet to be realized.
