There seems to be a flood of books at the present time on the feeding of infants, a worthy subject for our best efforts. Winters' little book is the most unpretentious of any that have come into our hands, and it is nevertheless to be commended. It gives a detailed account of the preparation of various infant foods and gives a formulary for the home modification of milk for infant feeding. The importance of the subject is not yet fully appreciated by the public, nor by some of the profession, and there are some details in regard to it in which we are yet in need of information, but this little volume seems to give a fair resumé of the facts and will be found convenient for reference. It is not so strikingly medical that lay readers might not profit by its perusal.
