This is another volume of the series on practical medicine and surgery. It deals with the care and feeding of the premature and the congenitally inferior infant. A short discussion of the etiology of these conditions is given, followed by a discussion of the food elements necessary in nutrition. This is followed by a consideration of the practical application of these principles and a few reports of illustrative cases. It is interesting to note that breast milk is considered to be by far the feeding of choice. A short chapter on digestive disturbances is given. The book is a concise discussion of the care of premature infants, and the matter contained is sound and practical.
