Excerpt from The American Medical Compend, Vol. 19: August, 1903 Read Before the Ohio State Pediatric Society, at Dayton, Ohio, June, 1903. A more thorough and comprehensive knowledge Of Infant Feeding is one Of the crying needs of the hour. As proof of this, I need but point you to the terri ble mortality among bottle-fed babies with which we are annually confronted. The paediatric specialist, always in the van in matters Of this kind, is followed too far in the wake, I fear, by the gen eral practitioner, upon whose broad and generous shoulders must ultimately fall the greater portion of this work, for it is he who sees the greater number of cases in which substitute feeding is necessary. The importance Of this subject is fur ther augmented when we stop to consider that intimately associated with infant feeding are the diarrhoea! Diseases so largely preventable, if due attention is paid to proper feeding, DO not infer that I think all the intestinal disturbances of early child life are due to this cause, but certainly by far the greater portion Of them are, only a small minority being caused by some special micro-organism, like the bacillus coli-communis or the bacillus Of Shiga.
