The author has written a practical book on infant feeding; very little space is taken up by theories on feeding. These chapters are devoted to human milk, cow's milk, modified milks and proprietary foods. The more commonly used proprietary infants' foods are discussed in some detail, as they are, no doubt, used more in South America than in this country. The remainder of the book deals with accessory foods. The book is concise and covers the subject satisfactorily.
