  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This study evaluated breast feeding behaviour of term neonates with only one video, which may not have been an accurate marker of feeding behavior.There could a possibility of inadvertent bias at the time of intervention.
