This concise outline of infant feeding and development is simply and clearly written so that it can be easily understood by students, nurses and even the average mother. A number of the diseases of infancy also are discussed. The chapters on the most common pathologic conditions of the neonatal period and later infancy are lacking in detail. Treatment is discussed briefly but adequately. The chapter concerning infant hygiene is prepared particularly for mothers and nurses. The book could hardly be recommended as a textbook for students because of the incompleteness of much of the material.
