Abstract

Date Presented 4/1/2017

A randomized crossover design examined preterm infants who were swaddled and unswaddled during bottle feeding, demonstrating improved feeding quality when swaddled and no difference in feeding efficiency. This study provides evidence to support swaddling as an occupational therapy intervention in the neonatal intensive care unit.
