The first part of this book treats of the hygiene of the infant; part two discusses feeding; part three deals with nervous manifestations; part four is on contagious diseases, and the final chapter is devoted to miscellaneous recipes. The work is well written and might be as useful as the usual book of this type for the mother, but the reviewer fails to see the point of specifying "Carnation milk (irradiated)" and "Viosterol made by Mead, Johnson & Co." or of including plates, by Courtesy of the Davol Rubber Co., on short nipples.
