It is stated in the preface that as many disorders of infancy are directly due to mismanagement, this little book is written for the guidance of the mother or nurse. The province of the physician is not encroached on, as Dr. Brown believes that in medicine especially a "little knowledge is a dangerous thing." The feeding of infants is given special attention, and considerable space is devoted to home modification of milk. At the same time attention is directed to the fact that even absolutely normal infants can not be fed by rule, and that special formulas are needed in many cases. Simple home remedies are given for bruises, falls, earache, etc.
