To date, there is a paucity of research focusing on maternal breastfeeding goals, how these goals may change after an unexpected event such as a preterm birth, and how mothers of ill and preterm infants define breastfeeding success. No studies were identified that focused exclusively on the breastfeeding goals of mothers of hospitalized preterm infants
The purpose of this study is to answer the following research questions: 1) What are the breastfeeding goals of mothers with preterm infants in the NICU? and 2) What are mothers' perceptions of facilitators and barriers to meeting their breastfeeding goals in the NICU?
