Abstract


Introduction: To find out the success of lactation, an assessment instrument has been developed with the aim of assessing the process of breastfeeding subjectively and objectively. Aim: to find out the effectiveness and weakness of the LATCH score as assessment tool of breastfeeding. Method: Five steps for scoping review were used in this review. Findings: The LATCH score was used effectively as a breastfeeding assessment tool. The LATCH score could assess about attachment, sound of swallowing, the shape of nipple, mother’s comfort level, the position of infant and can predict the duration of breastfeeding.
