This is a short book on infant feeding, written in Spanish. It is good to find that the author takes up nearly half of the book with the advantages and technic of breast feeding. This section is illustrated with tables and drawings. A brief but complete résumé is then given of the various forms of artificial foods (cow's milk formulas preferred), mixed feeding and medicinal foods that may be used. The bock is interesting and well prepared.
