Excerpt from Archives of Pediatrics, Vol. 24: A Monthly Journal Devoted to the Diseases of Infants and Children; January to December, 1907 Those milks which contained from 5 to per cent. Of fat gave a top milk containing an average of per cent. Of fat. It will be seen that the fat in the ten bottles of February lgth varied from 4 per cent. To per cent., and the fat in the top 8 ounces varied from 16 to 20 per cent. Incidentally it will be observed that the 4 per cent. Milk gave about 16 per cent. Of fat in the top 8 ounces, which is 2 per cent. Higher than I have heretofore found it to be, and higher than it has generally been stated to be. This means that we have been feeding our infants with a larger percentage of fat than we have intended to, or thought we were feeding. The effect of this is that when we thought we were feeding per cent. Of fat we were actually giving from to per cent. Of fat. When we thought we were giving 3. 5 per cent. We were actually giving from per cent. To per cent. The dif ference between and 5 per cent. Fat in a baby's food is a matter of no small importance, and probably accounts for some troubles that we have seen on certain days and which we could not explain. The chart shows that the variation in the same day from the same farm is from 1 to per cent. Of fat in the whole milk. If the amount were uniform from day to day, we could adjust it to the needs of the infant; but when we use 15 per cent. Top milk on one day and 20 per cent. Top milk the next, serious disturbance may result. There is manifestly a necessity for some means of securing a more uniform milk than these figures show. The cause of the variation may be in the methods used in bottling, or it may be in the breed of the cows in the stable.
