Introduction: Breast milk is the best nutritional supply for infants and exclusive nutrition with breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life and its continuation until 2 years are recommended. One of the important variables during breastfeeding length is breastfeeding self-efficacy which is the mother’s confidence and belief about her ability for breastfeeding. This study was performed with the aim to evaluate the effect of kangaroo mother care on breastfeeding self-efficacy in primiparous women, 3 month after child birth. Methods: This randomized control trial was performed on 72 primiparous women referred to Mashhad Omolbanin Hospital for delivery in 2013. Participants were randomly divided into two groups of kangaroo mother care group and routine care group, and were followed up for breastfeeding self-efficacy 3 months postpartum. Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 14 and Chi-square and student t-test. P < 0.05 was considered significant. Results: Mean breastfeeding self-efficacy score 3 months post partum was 56.29±4.57 in kangaroo mother care group and 51.87±10.43 in routine care group which showed statistically significant difference (P= 0.035). Conclusion: Kangaroo mother care immediately after birth leads to increased rate of breastfeeding self-efficacy in mothers and is an easy, cost-effective, and available method to increase the rate of breastfeeding.
