The purpose of this study was to examine the characteristics of domestic research into breast-feeding intervention education geared toward mothers and the content of the intervention based on the existing literature in an effort to provide information on how to offer the best intervention. Domestic studies reported between January 1993 and December 2014 were analyzed using four different databases. Fifteen studies were selected from 76 studies included in the databases after performing the searches. How long breast-feeding intervention remains effective should be studied to secure scientific rationales, which is one of the proper nursing interventions to boost breast feeding. As a result of analyzing the papers according to Whittmore and Knaf`s integrative review method, the individual educational intervention was offered in two papers, and the individual education and group education were both provided in four. In nine papers, individual education, group education, phone counseling and education by home visits were all offered. Follow-up studies should be conducted by adopting a systematic research design to find more scientific evidence for appropriate nursing interventions to boost breast-feeding. These results will be useful for the development of educational programs for breast-feeding if more accurate information on breast-feeding education for mothers can be obtained.
