This qualitative pilot study used an interpretative phenomenological design to examine mothers’ reported challenges and supports in performing the co-occupation of caregiving for their preterm infants upon discharge from the NICU. There are several implications for future OT practice, particularly as it relates to supporting maternal facilitation of infant play and sleep occupations and easing the transition from NICU to home during the first few weeks postdischarge.
