keep naptimes happy I Tips on bathing a tiny baby New baby-feeding picture book—free For a young baby naps are no trouble —he’d rather deep than do almost anything, except eat! But the more your little dynamo can see things and do things, the less sleep he wants or requires. • Nap needs differ greatly from baby to baby. By his first birthday (or months sooner or later!) your child may shift from two naps a day to one. The tricky question during this change-about period is what time of day is naptime? Too early, and baby feels insulted: too late and he’s exhausted! • Clues to watch for: if baby shoves with his feet when you hold him, squirms restlessly, or sucks his ’“■thumb persistently, he’s probably telling you he’s had it for now, and wants a snooze. Crankiness and cry ing are obvious signals. • One nice long nap after an early lunch may suit for several days, then suddenly two naps are needed again. The best you can do is to watch for signs of fatigue, offer your baby a nice, restful nap —but don t insist that he take it. • How long should you sponge in stead of tub-bathe your new baby? A few weeks or a few months —until you feel ready to try tubbing. Im < portant pointer: When sponging, keep your papoose under a cotton blanket, uncover only the place you’re sponging. A snug wrap also keeps him from rolling—a frighten ing sensation for a little baby. 26 • If your baby ever decides he’s tired of vegetables, surprise him — serve fruits instead for a week or so. He’ll get many of the same vitamins and minerals in delicious Heinz Baby Fruits as in Heinz nutritious Strained and Junior Vegetables. You’ll avoid mealtime battles —and probably get vegetables back on baby’s menu sooner.

Here are three tempting ways to use it OCTOBEB is the apple-scented month. Beyond the Rockies in the Columbia River Valley, in the Middle Western states, in Virginia, in New England there "fruits of fragrance blush on every tree.” Branches bend with the burden fruit to gloat upon at zenith of perfection. Fruit to touch the hand, to snap from the twig. Gently, carefully to rumble into the pickers’ bags. Apples unblem ished. . . Apples into boxes, into baskets, apples in transit; gold and scarlet pyramids are in the market place. Some 118 million bushels of apples is the estimated harvest. Eight mil lion bushels fewer than last year but still an apple for every hand. Apples for bowls, apples for lunch boxes. Let the teeth crack in. A winey flavor floods the mouth here is the soul of the blossom, distilled. "Comfort me with apples, for I am sick of love,” requested King Solomon. Plenty of this type of royal comfort is available for the autumn. Word comes from the orchards it’s a good apple year, good for size, good for color, good for flavor. New salad creations Scarlet loot at hand for ambro sial pies, for winey puddings. Apples to bake, apples to turn into sauce to accompany a loin of pork. Fry apples with sausage. Dice ap ples into salad. Combine red, tart apple cubes with sliced celery, with seeded grapes, with the miniature marshmallows, with chopped wal nuts; toss lightly with mayonnaise. Fill avocado halves with the mix ture, serve on chipped ice with let tuce and more mayonnaise. It’s a new salad creation! So is the Tropical Jellied Apple Salad served with Sour Cream Dressing. Even the time-beloved Waldorf Salad, originated by the late Oscar Tschirky, who headed the Waldorf kitchen from its open ing in 1893 until 1948, gets a novel touch. It’s done with cottage cheese, with gelatin. Speaking of Waldorf Salad, a little trick of my own, try it sometime, is to make it in the classic way then add bits of crisply fried bacon. This does something very nice for the flavor. A long way came the apple from southwestern Asia, the historians say. Once a bitter little crab, now the apple grows in beauty. The United States, not Asia, is the greatest apple producing region of the world. Washington, New York, Virginia, Michigan are the leading apple states in the order named. More than 7,500 varieties are known but less than 50 varieties are grown commercially. Hold an apple in the hand and you hold the miracle of an orchard. Slice an apple across. See the faint print of the blossom on its heart. . . . Enjoy these recipes.
