This book presents the practical considerations of feeding of infants. The main scientific background of infant feeding is summarized, and current trends, such as self-demand feeding, are discussed. Common and proprietary foods, such as milk preparations, carbohydrate and vitamin supplements and solid foods, are considered. The data and discussions of commercial preparations are useful in helping the physician organize the essential facts of those items stripped of folk lore and advertising claims. Various nursery routines are appended.
The book is written in a personalized style which makes for easy reading.
