This manual answers the majority of questions that perplex the young inexperienced mother in the care of her baby. It is brief, clear and well written.
The first part deals with the development of the baby, breast and bottle feeding, the care of the body, habits and training and clothing. One chapter is devoted to the sick baby. In the second part, the baby's entire daily routine is outlined in minute detail and offers a great many valuable suggestions.
The third part is devoted to charts for recording the baby's progress, and a few simple recipes are given.
Among the many books written for mothers on the care of infants, this ranks among the best.
