The purpose of this study was to examine parents' and/or caregivers' compliance with infant powder formula preparation and handling. Specifically, the relationship between parents' and/or caregivers' compliance and income level, education level, ethnicity, primary language, and education given by healthcare professionals, especially registered dietitians, was investigated.
A convenience sample was recruited from Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach in California. A short survey created by the researcher was given to participants to measure compliance. Descriptive data and analysis of variance procedures were conducted on each hypothesis, utilizing a significance level of p ≤ .05.
A total of 107 qualified surveys were used for analysis. The results showed that there was no significant difference in parents' and/or caregivers' compliance with infant formula preparation and handling, according to the variables studied. Further studies with a larger sample size or alternative methods to measure compliance may be warranted to confirm findings.
