Infant feeding—so simple a problem among simple people—has become, with advancing civilization, almost a major science occupying a great portion of the interest of a special field of medicine. In the past decade a vast amount of work has been done on this problem; a bewildering array of articles has been published. I felt that a culling of this vast granary in an effort to discover what is new, of interest or of importance might be of value. Obviously, a résumé of every paper would defeat this purpose. Therefore, individual judgment has been used, but I believe that sufficient references have been appended to assist any reader interested in a special problem.
Although classification is difficult, the work in general falls into these major groups:
Breast milk and feeding of the new-born
Evaporated, dried and condensed milk
