In this book, Pritchard emphasizes the impracticability of using one formula for all children. In the case of breast-fed infants he lays stress on the importance of regular meals for the mother as well as on the necessity of regular intervals between feedings for the child. Explicit directions are given for the preparation of artificial food and for modifying cow's milk, not only for infants but for sickly and delicate children. The development and physiology of the infant is also given careful attention. The book is complete and practical.
