This is a handy book of blanks, on which the physician may write the directions for the diet and regimen of his infant clientelage, tear them out and deliver to the nurse as often as required. It is not only a labor-saving appliance, but there are a few pages at the end containing printed directions for the preparation of diluents and foods, which may also be removed and handed to the nurse. In the management of children, the control and regulation of the diet is of the utmost consequence, and a carefully prepared list with directions, such as is found in this book, will be found very useful by all general practitioners and as well by those whose practice is exclusively confined to pediatrics.
