The Effect Of Nesting On The Behavior Of Low Birth Weight Babies At Medi Medika Clinic, Tangerang Regency Year 2022
Keywords:Nesting, Infant Behavior and Low Newborns.
Low birth weight babies (LBW) are babies with a birth weight of less than 2500 grams regardless of
gestational age. Birth weight is the weight of a baby who is weighed within 1 (one) hour after birth
(Amin & Hardhi, 2016). LBW can occur because the gestational age is less than normal, namely 37
weeks and the baby's weight is lower than babies in general (Ministry of Health, 2018). To determine
the effect of nesting on the behavior of low birth weight newborns at the Medi Medika Clinic, Tangerang Regency. Using quai experimental design with one group pretest posttest involving one group of
subjects. The research sample was 30 low birth weight newborns who were treated at the Medi Medika
Clinic in Tangerang Regency and were selected by purposive sampling technique. Research data were
analyzed using paired t-test and Wilcoxon test. The results of the analysis showed that there was a
significant effect of the use of nesting on the behavior of low birth weight newborns (p = 0.000). The
use of nesting as a form of developmental care can facilitate the achievement of better rest (which is
characterized by the regularity of physiological functions and the achievement of quiet sleep behavior),
so it needs to be implemented in the care of low birth weight newborns at the Medi Medika Clinic,
Tangerang Regency. There is a significant effect of the use of nesting on the behavior of low birth
weight newborns. Pregnant women are advised to seek more information regarding pregnancy care
through health workers, especially midwives, posyandu officers, the mass media and others, so they can
recognize the low risk of newborns.
