Nurses frequently assume that breastfeeding mothers are more attached to their infants than bottle-feeding mothers. The researchers observed 15 breastfeeding and 15 bottle-feeding mothers using the Avant maternal-infant attachment tool. The scores of the two groups were compared and no significant differences were found. The study results and limitations of this study and recommendations for future research are discussed.
