Abstract: 

Nested and Swaddle positioning among very low birth weight neonates can increase time in quiet sleep and decrease time spent crying or in active sleep. The Aim of our study were(i) To assess and compare the pre test and post test level of nested versus swaddled positioning on selected behavior among very low birth weight neonates in study group I and II and control group.(ii) Determine the effectiveness of the nested versus swaddled positioning on selected behavior among very low birth weight neonates in study group I and II and control group.(iii) To Associate post –test level of nested versus swaddled positioning on selected behavior among very low birth weight neonate with their demographic variables in study group I and II and control group. Quantitative approach and quasi-experimental to comparative group with wait list control group design used, 90 sample collected by Non- Probability Purposive sampling technique. The pretest and posttest done by using Brazelton (1982) Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale the reliability of the tool value was r=0.86.Nested versus swaddle positioning The analyzes depicted that the swaddle positioning effective on very low birth weight neonates with p=0.001 and association found in study group I and II for weight of the neonates, gestational weeks of the neonates in control group there is no association. The result of the study concluded that swaddle positioning was highly effective in improving the good behavior pattern among very low birth weight neonates. Therefore the investigator felt that knowledge gained can be achieved by nested versus swaddle positioning among very low birth weight neonates.
