This book is intended, as the title states, for the use of mothers and nurses, but it contains many points of interest to the physician. The details of ventilation of the baby's room, its clothing, bathing and feeding are considered. In regard to artificial feeding Fischer states that each child is a law unto itself, a fact that many physicians are inclined to overlook. The chapters on the care of infants and young children in disease, accidents and poisonings, and on correction of bad habits are commendable.
