This manual is compiled with the object of aiding students in the feeding of infants. It contains parts on breast feeding, artificial feeding and the modification of diet in disease. The discussion of conflicting views has been avoided, and the quantitative more than the qualitative is stressed. As it is written from the Scottish standpoint, which is quite correct locally, the book may not be so satisfactory from a general standpoint, such as the feeding of undiluted whole milk to infants and the use of a teaspoonful of orange juice twice a week to prevent scurvy.
