The need of a book on breast feeding to place in the hands of mothers is important and is not met by this small volume. Enthusiasm for the midwife and the public clinic are a New Zealand point of view. It is hoped that the mixed feeding information is not representative of practice in that country. The technic of "expression of the breasts" is described inadequately and appears in an unimportant position, the bulk of the space being devoted to repetitious advice and sentiment aimed now at the mother, now at the nurse.
