(Director to the Better Babies Bureau of the Woman's Home Companion). NO. 6 WEANING AND TEETHING. 1 My baby Is a year old. Dare I wean him in summer? . Yes, unless he is In very delicate condition and your physician advises against it. As a rule mother's milk Is not sufficiently nourishing for a baby 12 months old or more. Wean him gradually, not suddenly. At first, sub stitute one bottle feeding, about mid day, for a breast feeding. Give whole milk, 8 ounces or 16 tablespoons; barley water, 2 ounces or 4 table spoons. If possible, persuade the baby to. drink this from a spoon or cup. It Is time he learned to drink. It he re fuses, then resort to the bottle. At the end of three or four days, if he seems well, give two bottle or cup feeding3 instead of one. At the end of a month or six weeks he will te weaned. It Is a mistake to withdraw the breast abruptly and give nothing but modi fled milk. This should be done only in case of emergency, dangerous Ill ness of the mother, etc. 2 My milk does not seem to satisfy my sis months baby. He wants to nurse constantly and cries a great deal. Should he be weaned? Not abruptly and not without con sulting your doctor as to your own condition. Your baby is hungry or spoiled. If you are anaemic or poorly nourished, your milk does not satisfy his hunger, and your strength should be built up. If your milk is rich, he has been spoiled by Irregular feeding and knows that by crying he will be fed at any time. Have the breast milk analyzed. If the baby needs more nourishment, build up your own health, and gradually feed him modified milk from a bottle, spoon or cup, prefer ably the latter. 3. Does weaning increase the dan ger of teething? Not when the baby is teething nor mally and his digestion is generally good. Teething is a normal process. Illness during teething comes generally from digestive disorders, not from the pain of detention. Wean the baby gradually, using Judgment in selecting the formula, feed regularly, watch the bowels carefully and if the baby seems normal, there is no danger. 4 When should a baby be weaned? Progressive physicians and baby specialists no longer set a definite montn lor weaning, in Tact, when a baby is healthy, the process is auto matic, starting within a few months after birth. A bottle feeding is given once a day, in place of the usual breast feeding, at three months or even earl ier. This Is Increased to two feed ings a day at six months. Soon after this, the baby is trained to drink modi fied milk from a spoon or cup and at 12 months It Is ready to give up the breast entirely. This plan is approved because It prepares the baby for any emergency such as maternal Illness, death or separation, and It gives the mother more liberty. Most important. it accustoms the baby's stomach grad ually, almost Imperceptibly to cow's milk. Sudden changes In diet are always dangerous. fi When should the bottle-fed baby be weaned? If he is in good condition, that Is up to the proper standard of weight and general health, at nine months he may be fed some foods, lke gruel, or his modified milk, and even beef broth from a cup along with half a bottle, At a year, such a feeding Is substituted for the usual bottle feeding. At 15 months he has three bottle feedings and two cup feedings. At 16 or 17 months, he has three meals a day. and a bottle at 9 or 10. At 18 or 20 months no bottle is given at night The wean ing is accomplished. 6 When should a baby begin teeth ing? Babies begin teething at different times. Sometimes delayed teething is a family trait More often It is due to ill-health, malnutrition, rickets or other constitutional diseases. The breast-fed child teeths earlier and more easily than a bottle-fed baby, and usually exhibits its two lower mid dle teeth at six months. If no teeth have appeared at nine months, a doc tor should be consulted. An averaga table of dentition Is this: Twelve mos., 6 teeth; 18 not., 12 teeth; 24 mos., 16 teeth; 30 mos., 20 teeth, the complete first set or milk teeth. 7 Does hard teething cause convul sions? Not unless teething is accompanied by disordered digestion. The pain from teething is not sufficient to cause convulsions, but pain, a slight tem perature, and indigestion together will bring on convulsions. 8 When should the gums be lanced? On the advice of your physician only. If the gums are swollen and discol ored, and there is fever with vomiting and perhaps slight diarrhoea, send for your doctor at once. This may mean the approach of the dreaded summer complaint, which In combination with teething is so generally fatal. Fine Society Stationery The kind In a class by It self.

Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) Will you please tell me bow to make turtle soup? Which turtles are usqd, soft or hard shell? (2) Please give me your recipe for nut bread. MRS. M. (1) Usually soft-shlll turtles are used, as the meat is easier to get out, but a hard-shelled turtle can be used Just as well. After the head is cut off plunge the body into boiling water to loosen the shell. The bottom shell comes off comparatively easy. Dig out the meat at '. discard entrails. Just as if you were cleaning a chicken. - Use only the good, clean meaty parts and cut these into small pieces not larger than dice. To two pounds of turtle meat u. e four carrots, three onions, a little thyme and parsley, pepper and salt to taste and four quarts cold water. Slice the onions and two of the carrots and fry brown In drippings. Tie the thymef an! parsley In a little cloth bag. to be dropped into the soup. Put turtle, fried vegetables and bag of thyme and parsley Into the cold water, grate the other two carrots Into -water and boi! slowly four hours. Then strain and Benson, boll 15 minutes longer and serve hot. (2) Nut bread Four cups flour, four teaspoonfuls baking powder, one half teaspoonful salt, one-half sup su gar two cups milk, one egg, one cup walnuts (raisins, too, It desired). Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together, then add nuts (and raisins it used). Beat egg in milk and add. spr ing with knife. Put in greased pan, let stand 20 minutes, then bake one hour in slow oven. Dear Mrs. Thompson: We are two girls of 19 and 14 years of age. (1) Is there too much difference in our ages for us to chum together? (2) What would be nice to take to a picnic luncheon? (3) What kind of dresses would be suitable to wear? (4) Is a girl of 14 too young to go on a picnic with a boy of 18? 19 AND 14. (1) You may have very congenial tastes, so why not chum together, no matter what your ages be? (2) Sandwiches, of course make some of white, some of brown and some of white wheat bread, with dif ferent cold meats and vegetable mix tures. Sandwiches of chopped raisins and nuts mixed with mayonnaise are nice, or chopped olives and celery be tween lettuce leaves, or chopped egg and cucumber between lettuce leaves. Deviled eggs are nice for picnics, pic kles, fresh fruits or vegetables (such as tomatoes or radishes) filled cook ies, lemonade syrup, small spice cakes and nut cakes, or candy. (3) Wash dresses simply' made. (4) No. But she should not wan der oft Into the woods alone with him, but keep where the other folks are. Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I have several large blackheads in my face. They have been there a long time. How can I get rid of them? (2) What would be pretty colors for a high BCbool class something that is not o much used. MAGGIE K. is '?vv.x (1) Massage the face with cold cream every night and wipe off sur plus cream with a clean cloth. Next morning wash the face with fairly hot water and a mild soap, then rinse with cold water. If the black-heads appear soft enough, prick with a needle (steri lized in boiling water), and gently press out the black-head. Don't bruise the skin, and if the black-head Is not soft enough, wait a day or two, repeat ing the cold cream and hot water treat ment. After squeezing out the black head, anoint the spot with peroxide or alcohol. Keep up the cold cream mas. sage every night to clear the skin of all dirt, and always wash the face In the morning with warm water ml mild soap, and rinse well sftenrtri with cold water. Your skin will m become so healthy that you will Im no black-heads. Meantime, of eeum keep your stomach and boweli is goo condition and eat so rich, sharp or spicy foods.
