KMC sessions were documented by duration and telephone data was collected about continued breastfeeding (Flacking, Ewald, & Wallin, 2011). The Norwegian study applied dual treatments where they alternated music therapy and Kangaroo Care to an group of preterm infants and Kangaroo Care only to the other group.
