The current research aimed to explore the efficacy of an educational program on the attitude of primi mothers towards milestones of early infant communication, feeding-swallowing and general health of their infants. The objectives of the study were (1) to develop and validate an attitude questionnaire, parent education program, and feedback questionnaire; and (2) to estimate the efficacy of an education program pre and post-intervention delivery. Ninety-eight primiparous mothers without any obstetric history, proficient in English or Kannada, and delivering healthy newborns were recruited for the study. Phase 1 involved the development and validation of Attitude Questionnare (AQ), the parent education program [Newborn Communication, Health, Feeding and Swallowing Education Program (N-CHFSEP)], and Feedback Questionnaire (FQ); while Phase 2 comprised of administering them on the mothers. Both quantitative (descriptive statistics, paired t-test, and chi-square test) and qualitative analysis were done on the parameters of interest. The dataset includes the demographics and responses (pre and post-administration of the questionnare) from the study participants.
