Maternal perceptions of feelings and the relationship to their children during feeding with infant formula (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Idag är det vanligt att mödrar inte ammar, dock värderas detta fortfarande lågt i samhället. Forskningen som finns angående dessa mödrars erfarenheter av anknytning till sina barn, är begränsad. En distriktssköterska ska kunna ge olika sorters stöd i moderskapet, exempelvis genom praktisk kunskap och på ett sätt som identifierar mödrars upplevelser kring att inte amma. 

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva hur mödrar som ger sina barn modersmjölksersättning, upplever känslorna och relationen till sina barn. 

Metod: Tio intervjuer med mödrar genomfördes. Kvalitativ innehållsanalys med en induktiv ansats och en deduktiv ansats användes i studien. Den induktiva delen bestod av öppna frågor och i den deduktiva delen användes MIRF-skalan. 

Resultat: Åtta underkategorier och tre huvudkategorier framträdde. Kategorierna resulterade i ett tema: " Upplevelser av att skapa en föräldraroll och hur relationen till barnen varierade och utvecklades känslomässigt över tid."

Konklusion: Mödrarna uttryckte starka, mestadels positiva känslor gentemot sina barn. De mödrar som försökt att amma men fått avsluta amningen, var särskilt sårbara och i behov av stöd. Känslor av att vara en otillräcklig moder på grund av att inte kunna amma, kunde påverka moderns psykiska hälsa negativt och orsaka fördröjda moderskänslor.                     

Abstract [en]

Background: It is common for mothers not to breastfeed today, still it is of low value by society. The research available about these mothers´ experiences of connection to their children, is limited. A district nurse should be able to support motherhood in different manners, for example by practical knowledge and in a way, that identifies mothers’ experiences about not breastfeeding. 

Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe how mothers who give formula milk to their infants, experience feelings and the relationship to their infants. 

Method: Ten interviews with mothers were conducted. Qualitative content analysis with an inductive approach and a deductive approach was used. The inductive part consisted of open questions and the MIRF-scale was used in the deductive part. 

Results: Eight subcategories and three main categories emerged. The categories resulted in a theme: “Experiences of creating a parenting roll and how the relationship with the children varied and developed emotionally over time.” 

Conclusion: The mothers expressed strong, mostly positive feelings towards their children. Mothers who tried to breastfeed and could not continue, were particularly vulnerable and in need of support. Feeling inadequate as a mother because of not being able to breastfeed, could affect the mother´s mental health negatively and cause delayed maternal feelings.
