Detailed notes
    - To determine the effect of breastfeeding education provided to fathers on breastfeeding rates and paternal-infant attachment. 117 couples with their infants with the inclusion criteria: knowledge of reading, writing and speaking Turkish; living in the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus until their infants were six months old; and infants having no health problems preventing the early initiation of breastfeeding. Participants were divided into 3 groups (2 experimental and 1 control). Breastfeeding education was provided to the mothers (20 min/d) in the first group (n=38) and to the mothers and fathers in the second group (n=39) (20 min/d/parent) until they were discharged from the hospital. This education was supplemented by a training booklet. The parents and their infants were followed until the infants were six months old. Exclusive breastfeeding rates and Paternal-Infant Attachment Scale scores at six months were main outcome measures. Exclusive breastfeeding rates (56.4%, 33.3% and 12.8%; P < 0.001) and mean (SD) Paternal-Infant Attachment Scale scores [89.51(7.05), 82.37 (12.80) and 73.38 (18.67); P < 0.001] were highest in the group where education was provided to both mother and father. Providing breastfeeding education to fathers increases exclusive breastfeeding rates and strengthens paternal attachment.
