ABSTRACT

The author states in the preface that this book is not intended to take the place of medical advice, but to help the inexperienced mother in the little things which are so important in the child's daily life. This idea is carried out; the teaching is practical and the language simple. The chapter on articial feeding is good; and the necessity for strict eleauliness of all bottles and utensils used is emphasized. The proper care of the child in the simple disturbances of childhood is described, and the administration of "patent medicines" is condemned. Nursing is contagious diseases is discussed briefly. The upbringing of the child, apart from the physical development, is gone into at some length, and the necessity for absolute truthfulness on the part of the parents is emphasized. The book is to be commended and might be read with profit by all parents.
