Abstract: The Nursing Child Assessment Feeding Scale (NCAFS), developed by Barnard et al., is used as an assessment tool for detecting impaired mother-child interaction and preventing tragic affairs such as infant abuse. The present paper describes the results of the application of the NCAFS for the assessment of the interaction between mother and neonate (less than 7 days of age). The data were obtained by observing 105 mother-neonate pairs during their feeding periods and by scoring each pair according to the NCAFS. The internal consistencies (Cronbach's α coefficient: 0.836) indicated the sufficient reliability of this method. In addition, correlation between the NCAFS score and mother's emotion towards her baby was analyzed. Mothers, 1) with a lack of self-confidence in providing childcare, 2) with anxiety or worry about childcare, 3) without a support system, or 4) with a physical handicap preventing their giving sufficient childcare, all had low NCAFS scores. From these results, it was concluded that the NCAFS can be used to detect mothers with high risk of childcare problems.
