This second edition of a book for popular use contains about 300 pages and a few illustrations.

No attempt is made to tell the mother how to devise her own formulas for feeding the infant. The latter third of the book deals with the development, environment, training and common diseases of childhood. This is a perfectly safe and sane book which any physician can well recommend to his clientele.
