Dr. Meyer has revised and changed the title of his first book Essentials of Infants Feeding for Physicians. Perhaps in no field of medicine are there more differences of opinion than in that of infant-feeding, but Dr. Meyer has avoided dogmatism and arbitrary directives on which successful and individual infant-feeding is based.

Tables from generally accepted authorities, containing the most recent information on nutritional data, have been carefully selected from many
