Progress in Pediatrics

Am J Dis Child. 1935;49(1):153-190. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1935.01970010162017

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

  • Artificial feeding

    1. Acidified milk

    2. Protein milk

    3. Evaporated, dried and condensed milk

    4. Concentrated feedings
