Fathers and Infants: Reported Caregiving and Interaction.
Katsh, Beverly S.
Journal of Family Issues, v2 n3 p275-96 Sep 1981
Investigated fathers' reported interaction with infants. Instrumentation consisted of three sets of questionnaires. Results indicated fathers of nonbreast-fed infants reported being generally more involved in caregiving. Fathers performed care tasks selectively, were more participatory when mothers were present, played with or comforted infants more than they performed physical care. (Author/RC)
