The purpose of this social media group randomized trial (GRT) is to test the feasibility of our Baby Dayr for Teen Moms intervention to increase maternal responsiveness to infant cues and implement healthy feeding practices through development of a healthy feeding style.
Aim 1: Evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of the Baby Dayr intervention administered to the target population as it relates to their acceptance and satisfaction with the content, format, delivery, and use of social media.
Aim 2: Explore efficacy of the Baby Dayr intervention administered to adolescent mothers of infants 4 months of age or less as assessed by maternal responsiveness, feeding style, and feeding practices evaluated at the completion of the intervention using self-report methods.

Experimental: Tools for Teen Moms Intervention Group
Tools for Teen Moms intervention group will receive daily challenges focusing on: 1) Maternal-Infant Feeding Interaction; and 2) Feeding Practices Challenges. The challenges will cycle through a pre-determined schedule where they are automatically updated each day at midnight. Participants will have a 24-hour period to complete each challenge. The intervention will provide a new daily challenge over six weeks, a time frame selected to provide participants with enough opportunities to form the habit of visiting the website daily. Participants will continue to receive usual MIHP care during the intervention.
Behavioral: Tools for Teen Moms
The Tools for Teen Moms intervention is a novel social media intervention platform designed by the investigators which includes cell phone text message reminders, and infant feeding website, and Facebook to increase infant-centered feeding through daily behavioral challenge activities ("challenges") for this population. The intervention consists of 6 weeks of daily challenges and will be delivered within the infant's first 6 months of life.
No Intervention: MIHP standard care
MIHP care consists of voluntary home visits: one week postpartum, at six weeks, and six months, and on-going as needed provided by a RN, licensed social worker, RD, infant mental health specialist and/or paraprofessional. Content includes a flexible plan of care with visits based on identified domains for both the mother and the infant.
- Change in Infant Growth [ Time Frame: Baby is less than 2 months; baby is 3 months; baby is 6 months ]Recumbent infant length (inches) and weight (pounds/ounces) measured at three separate time points. While recumbent infant length was collected in inches and weight collected in pounds/ounces, these measures were converted into z-score measurements for the outcome measurement of change in infant growth. Standardized weight scores are measures of relative weight adjusted for child age and sex. The z-score indicates the number of standard deviations away from a reference population in the same age range and with the same sex. A z-score of 0 is equal to the mean. Negative numbers indicated weight values lower than the mean and the positive numbers indicate weight values higher than the mean.
