This study investigated the attitudes of college students toward various infant feeding practices using a questionnaire created by the authors on the basis of a review of the literature. Five hundred ten students enrolled at the University of Mississippi took part in the study. Findings indicated that respondents believed both high school and college educators have been important sources of information regarding infant feeding practices. The results support the view that family and consumer sciences professionals have an important role to play in providing accurate information on infant feeding practices. (Contains 2 tables.)
