Resumo: Objective: to assess the evidence on scientific knowledge related to breastfeeding adolescents and the need for nursing care. Method: systematic review seeking the answer to the question: What are the priority learning needs for postpartum nursing care provided to adolescent mothers? A search was conducted on articles available in Portuguese and English, published between 2007 and 2013 and indexed in LILACS, MEDLINE, PubMed, and SciELO databases. Results: the sample consisted of ten articles addressing different needs of adult mothers, related to the new skills and the information necessary to manage postpartum issues regarding self-care and newborn care. Conclusions: the needs were not systematically identified, constituting a multicausal phenomenon arising from a multiplicity of factors from different dimensions that interact with each other, making it difficult to associate only one dimension.

Resumo: Adolescent motherhood is a risky situation related to poorer quality of infant caregiving. The lack of social support and increased odds for maternal depression are the main concerns. This study aimed to investigate whether maternal–foetal attachment, social support and maternal depression measured during pregnancy and after birth were associated with postpartum maternal behaviours among Brazilian adolescent mothers. Forty-one adolescent mothers participated (Mage = 16.88 years; SD = 1.60) in the first two waves of a longitudinal study. Both mother and infant behaviours were assessed during videotaped home observations at three months postpartum. Hierarchical regression analysis indicated that positive postpartum maternal behaviours were strongly related to concurrent, rather than prenatal, measures of social support and maternal depression. Infant birth weight was also associated with positive maternal behaviours. Findings contribute to a better understanding of the personal and contextual factors affecting maternal behaviours shortly after birth in a high-risk sample of adolescent mothers.

Resumo: This manuscript aims to present and discuss challenges regarding naturalistic observation of adolescent mothers and their infants throughout the first postpartum year. Case illustrations were the object to discuss methodological options and issues faced during an observational and longitudinal research. The participants live in vulnerability in a metropolitan area in Southern Brazil. Data collection challenges led to reflections about naturalistic observation and methodological procedures, which were affected by setting characteristics and by the need of adapting to them. Most methodological difficulties were linked to naturalistic observations of mothers and their infants. Personal and contextual aspects of these settings must be taken into account in order to enhance result reliability and the knowledge about cultural idiosyncrasies.
