Infant cry : fathers' experience from the crying period (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Spädbarnsskrik associeras med intensiv gråt hos spädbarnet. Som pappa kan skrikperioden upplevas påfrestande. Specialistsjuksköterskan på barnhälsovården kan erbjuda vägledning och stöd i föräldraskapet. Huruvida spädbarnsskriket påverkar papparollen är inte väl studerat Syfte: Att beskriva pappors upplevelser och erfarenheter av spädbarnsskrik under spädbarnets första sex månader Metod: Studien genomfördes som en kvalitativ intervjustudie med åtta pappor. Materialet analyserades med kvalitativ innehållsanalys Resultat: I resultatet framkom att papporna upplevde en otillräcklighet under skrikperioden. Otillräcklighet i kunskap om spädbarnsskrik, som pappa och i relationen till spädbarnets mamma. Stödet under skrikperioden var betydelsefullt. Det erhållna stödet var främst från spädbarnets mamma samt från socialt nätverk och sjukvården Slutsats: Pappan vill vara delaktig och medverka på BHV. Specialistsjuksköterskan kan uppmärksamma den otillräcklighet och det stöd pappan efterfrågar. Med pappagrupper skapas en möjlighet för pappan att utbyta erfarenhet med andra pappor sina upplevelser av spädbarnsskrik.

Support from the infant's mother was important but also social network Conclusion: The father wanted to be involved in the infant care and the contact with the child health care center. The specialist nurse can notice the inadequacy the father felt and the support he needs in the fatherhood. Father groups can lead to an exchange of experiences between fathers.
