reason, they haYe set themselves the
task of supplying good milk for babies
that axe bottle fed. They open milk
stations wfcere certified milk is sold
to mothers of babies, and where
these mothers are told how to modify
the milk, how to keep it sweet, and
how to care for the bottles from which
it is fed. Then these organizations
go behind the milk station, to the
dairy, where conditions are investigat
ed and the cows are tuberculin-tested.
The results of this wonderful cam
paign are shown in the reduction of
mortality among babies in all cities
where such work Is carried on.
So if you must raise your baby on
the bottle, first find out the source
of your milk supply and then learn
how to modify the milk to fit' your
baby's individual needs.
Know where the milk comes from,
the condition of the dairy and the
health of the cow or cows which will
supply nouribhment to your baby. If
you had to hire a wet nurse you

3 or 4 ounces of milk with 12 ounces of

delicate child, or a child whose diges

proper modification of milk without
consulting her physician.
Now as to the division of the milk
to be fed the baby; No bottle baby
should receive more than eignt ounces
at a feeding. His feedings are divided
into the same intervals as those of
the nursing baby. The delicate baby,
from birth to three months, is fed

child will not gain in weight.
