Dr. G. (i. Crai'jj's Excellent Paper
on the Stibject.
Head He fore the L,at Men lex or ll
Iowa and ll'inoi fssoclity, and
of Interna to all Mother.
At the laslmeetiog of the I.iwa and
Illinois Central District Medical society,
held at Davenport, July 9, one of the
most interesting papers presented was,
that read by Dr. Q. G. Craig.of this city,
on the subject of "Infant Feeding." With
so high regard was the paper receiyed by
the association that the secretary was in
structed to have it published in The Vis
Medicatrix, a leading medical journal.
But the subject is one that is of peculiar
importance, not only to the medical fra
ternity, but it is one that will receive the
first consideration ofmothers everywhere.
Hence tbe reiroduc:ion of the paper will
be of interest:
There is no food for the infant equal in
all respects to the ruilS of a healthy
mother. What may be eai.l upon the
subiect in this pper will, therefore be
with the understanding that, from some
cause beyond the control of the physi
cian, the child has l.etn deprived of na
ture's provision. The market is glutted
with baby foods, and our offices are in
vaded almost daily by agents employed lo
talk this food into the doctors.
Many of our mtdical journals are full
of articles which appear to be written ia
Ihe ii'erev f "cirree. hi.t which nre, in
reality, advertisements of the various
preparations of infant food.
It is my object in this paper to speak
from a pruetiptl tnHn.,int T mil
therefore, sav nothin? about the milli nf
the wet nurse, the goat, the asi, or any
thing so generally unobtainable, but will
connne my remarks to articles within our

Although fooJ, as now prepared, may

not best to prepare it for more than
twenty-four hours, except in case of
traveling, when it will not be possible to
obtain reliable milk or prepare it. It is
not we'd to rely uuon a milkman for a
supply for this purpose, for the churning
it re. ivcb b btiLg hauled about spoils
it. and where go many kinds of milk are
being handled they are liable to become
The first thing to do is to get a cood,
healthy cow, one that is fed on nutritious
food, and not on glucose-refuse or swill.
Take the milk as it comes from the cow,
immediately after milkirip an that nn
change has time to take place. Add to
one part of it two parts of barley water,
prepared by boiling four teaspoonfuls of
freshly ground pearl barley, with a little
common salt, in a pint of water, for fif
teen minutes. Add to this about four
teaspoonfuls of sugar of milk, and put it
into plain feeding bottles. This propor.
tion is intended for a young infant, there
fore the quantity to be put into each
bottle should be about two ounces, and
twelve bottles should be prepared each
day. These bottles should then be stop
pered with common cotton, and placed in
an Arnold sterilizer, and steamed from
tnree-fourtbs of an hour to an hour.
Then remove the bottles to a shaded
place, where they are cut of the way. and
let them cocl gradual!?. When vnu rte.
sire to use one, remoye the cotton and
throw it away, add a teaspoonful of lime
water, set it in a vessel of warm water
until it is heated to a temperature of 99 9
to 1(0 0 , place a common nipple over the
mouth of the bottle, and let the baby
nurse it all if it pleases.
After tbe baby is through nursing,
wash the nipple in a solution of carbonate
of soda, and put it into a cup of solution
of borax at boracic acid, and let it soak
until you want to use it again, when it
BhouM be dipped in a solution of bicar
bonate of soda. Don't scald it, for that
will spoil the rubber.
Tbe bottle should also be immediately
wU washed with a solution of carbonate
of soda, and scalded. Then fill it with
hot water to which has been added a tea
spoonful of powered borax, or boracic
acid, and allow it to stand until the time
for using again, when it should be rinsed
out with bicarbonate of soda water.
In cases of obstinate constipation ot
meal water should be substituted for bar
ley water, and if the cow be a Jersey I
think areductionof one-third the quantity
of milk should be made. I have not
noticed an analysis of the milk of a Jersey
cow, but I know from experience that a
leBS proportionate Quantity should be
used, for it contains much more fat than
the milk of a common cow.
In this paper I have endeavored to
mention briefly the little details which
may appear to the inexperienced as mat
ters of trifling importance, such as the
care of the nippies, the bottles and so on,
but I cauaot imuress upon you too
strongly the importance of their strict
observance. I have no doubt many of
you have seen babies live and do well
without such care, but it won t do to
reason from that fact that such rigid reg
ulations are unnecessary. Twen'y-five
years ago its wastheexceptionforabottle
fed baby in a city to live. Now it is theex
ception, if fed in accordance with strict
regulations, for the baby to die. Of
coarse I refer to gastro-inteatinal diseases.
Many good authorities recommend a com
bination of cream, milk and water, in
stead of milk freso from tbe cow, and I
would suggest that it be tried if the food
recommended tn this article sjeros to d.s-.
agree, but it has always struck me that,
inasmuch as human milk contains less fat
than cow's milk, the addition of cream
would render it 1S3 likely to agree with
a tender stomach
Prepared foods are mentioned only to
be condfmned 8nme nf them do well in
individual cises, but I look upon them, if
good at all, as medicated foods, and I
think it better for the physician to pre
scribe the medicine himself to suit the
case. Many of them are simply money
making mixtures. I ee no reason why
anyone should select for his diet a con
glomerate mass of stuff that nobody
knows what it was originally, and less
about what it may be when prepared for
u e, when he cm have a diet that he
knows to be absolutely pure and whole
some. Treat your baby as you would be
treated, and give it simple food, pre
pared under your own observation, free
as possible from ptomaines or germs of
disease, and everything that is unclean.
