This small pamphlet describes the bed, clothing, feeding and general care of the premature infant. It contains no information that is not presented much better in any pediatric textbook. The purpose of the book is not apparent. Certainly it is of no use to the doctor; perhaps it is intended for the laity. A doctor's care for all premature infants would seem better than a pamphlet to parents.
