Experimental: Conventional vs. Opaque, Weighted Bottle
This is a within-subject experiment; mothers will be asked to feed their infants from a clear, conventional bottle during one visit and an opaque, weighted bottle during the other visit. Order of conditions will be counterbalanced.
Behavioral: Opaque, weighted bottle
This is the experimental condition; mothers will be asked to feed their infants from an opaque, weighted bottle.
Behavioral: Clear, conventional bottle
This is the control condition; mothers will be asked to feed their infants from a clear, conventional bottle.
- Infant intake [ Time Frame: 3-hour period ]Infant intake within a feeding (mL) assessed by weighing the bottle before and after a feeding.
- Maternal responsiveness [ Time Frame: 3-hour period ]Maternal responsiveness to infant cues during a feeding assessed by Nursing Child Assessment Satellite Training Parent-Child Interaction Feeding Scale.
- Maternal acceptance/perception of intervention [ Time Frame: 3-hour period ]Maternal perception/acceptance of the bottles during a feeding assessed through a mixed methods interview.
