This study aimed to explore if and how OTs are addressing breastfeeding in the NICU, including the types of interventions used, the roles assumed, and subjective perceptions of barriers to addressing breastfeeding. An online survey was distributed nationwide to OTs currently working in NICUs. Data were collected from 85 eligible participants in 30 states; 84% of respondents indicated they provide breastfeeding interventions primarily in the roles of clinician and educator.
