HOW MILK PASTEURIZATION
SAFEGUARDS BABY'S LIFE
Mothers' milk is free from germs.
But when the time comes for baby
to be fed with cow's milk there is
great danger of It containing germs.
Particularly in the summer time
when it spoils quickly.
To guard against these germs
cow's milk should be pasteurized be
fort it is given to baby.
Pasteurization means heating the
milk to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit
for 30 minutes and then rapidly cool
Milk for the baby should'always be
pasteurized in the feeding bottles. It
may be done as follows:
The milk should be mixed and
poured into the clean feeding bottles,
which should then be stoppered with
clean, non-absorbent cotten or caps.
It is then ready for parteurization.
While a ,number of satisfactory
pasteurizers can be bougtit in the
shops a home-made pasteurizer can
be easily constructed.
Take a wire basket that will hold
all the nursing bottles used in -24
hours and place this basket contain
ing the bottles in a vessel of cold
water filled to a point a little above
the level of the milk.
Heat the water and allow it to boil
for five minutes, then run cold water
into the vessel until the milk is cool
ed to the temperature'of the Tunning
The milk is then put into the ice
chest, which should not be warmer"
than 50. degrees Fahrenheit.
