Baby Pen

 

Why this picture of an ordinary baby pen on a screened porch but with no baby in it?

Anyway, why read a baby book that was popular during and after World War One - nearly a century ago?

Is there anything of value that young mothers of today might learn by reading this admittedly didactic medical discourse on baby care, so much of which is either obsolete - or worse, occasionally even borders on abuse and neglect of the poor baby, let alone the author's discount of the mother herself?

Read it! You may be surprised and even pleased that you did, when you discover some of the old-fashioned, pre-antibiotic medical wisdom lying beneath the draconian commands issued by this stern medical deity, and focus on the good information he also represents!
