Abstract: • Abstract-breast feeding is the natural way of providing the new born baby with the appropriate nutrition for its overall growth and development. Initiation of breast feeding in the golden 1 hour not only improves the LATCH score but also the mother’s confidence in breastfeeding. It also provides New Born Baby with colostrum which is rich in immunoglobulins and provides protection against infection and diseases thus reducing neonatal mortality Objective- The study aimed to assess the effect of early initiation of breast feeding on LATCH score. Methods-An experimental study was conducted among NBBs of 30 LSCS mothers in each arm who were recruited by convenient sampling. The samples were randomly allocated to experimental and control group. Procedure was explained to the mothers during the antenatal period and their consent obtained for the same. Breast feeding was initiated within an hour among willing mothers and the NBBs LATCH score was assessed at 1 hr and 2hr of birth. Sociodemographic data was collected using a structured questionnaire and LATCH score using a checklist. Results- The experimental group had a higher LATCH score than the experimental group. The average LATCH score after 2 hours was significantly high with a P < 0.001 Conclusion-Early breast feeding within golden 1 hour is an effective strategy in improving LATCH score of babies and thereby an effective breastfeeding pattern and healthy life.
