Abstract:
The purpose of this research was to describe the relationship between maternal perception of infant health, reliance on others and caregiving in mothers of low birth weight (LBW) (ṉ = 30) infants and mothers of normal birth weight infants (ṉ = 30). A descriptive research design was used for a secondary analysis of data. Significant relationships were found between maternal perception of: infant health and caregiver burden (R² =.29, p̱ ≤ .001); confidence in caregiving and caregiver burden (R² change =.12, p̱ ≤ .01); infant health and confidence in caregiving (R² change =.18, p̱ ≤ .001); and preparation for caregiving and confidence in caregiving (R² change =.10, p̱ ≤ .02). A significant difference was found between mothers of LBW infants and mothers of normal birth weight infants in their perception of infant health (ṯ (58) = -2.02, p̱ ≤ .05) and caregiver burden (ṯ (58) = -3.50, p̱ ≤ .001).
