ABSTRACT

This work has been revised, many chapters having been entirely rewritten. The chapters on "Management and Hygiene of the Normal Infant" and "Methods of Examination" are very practical. Section II of the book is devoted to the subject of infant feeding and this section alone would make the book a valuable one. Tables are given showing the composition of colostrum, normal breast milk, cow's milk, etc., and the differences in composition in human milk and that of the cow, goat and ass. Methods of modifying and Pasteurizing cow's milk are discussed in detail, and the disadvantages of sterilization as compared with Pasteurization are noted. Directions are also given for preparing the various artificial foods. Contraindications for maternal nursing are noted and the qualifications for a good wet-nurse stated. The various diseases of infancy and childhood are considered, including congenital syphilis. The illustrations are good, especially the colored ones.
