This integrative literature review extensively reviews 10 published articles that focus on the effectiveness of the use of music therapy with premature infants to promote oral feeding or assist with a smoother transition from parenteral feeding to enteral feeding, and how these music therapy interventions may also impact weight gain.

The dataset includes a list of articles that met the inclusion criteria for the study and includes the authors and year of publication. The dataset also includes the findings extracted from the articles categorising the articles into the primary outcomes measured and the impact music had on the measured outcome (feeding and weight gain, feeding, weight gain).
