STAND GUARD A GAINST
BABY’S GERM ENEMIES
Spoiled Milk the Chief Cause of Illness in Infants,
Says I>r. Copeland, Urging Mothers to Watch
Constantly Over Little Folk’s Food.
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
United States Senator from New York.
Fortner Commissioner of Health, New York City.
IT is necessary to use eternal vigilance if baby’s health is to "be'
guarded against watchful enemies. I wish it' were possible to
make health “catching,” instead of having to worry over the
dozens of diseases that may be caught.
since me reeding oi me nany is me roost
important part of its life, strict attention must
be given the feedings and the food. There are
two things that must be kept in mind every hour
of the day—the proper care of the feeding
bottles and the proper care of the food. Atten
tion to these will ward off disease.
Spoiled milk is the chief cause of illness in
young children. I am sorry to say it is one of
the chief causes of death. Knowing this fact, it
behooves us to take not the slightest chance.
The first thing to do is to find a place
where milk of known purity can be purchased.
Tnis is not difficult in a large city where the
public health appropriations are large enough
to make possible the supervision of the milk,
from its place of production, right up to your
« is more aniicuit m smaller communities
Ton must make sure you are doing your best in this matter. Talk
with your doctor, the county health official, or somebody who can
really give accurate information regarding the milk. It is vital to the
welfare of your child that clean milk, from a healthy cow, is pro
I am Horry that the popular Idea
about milk is that its "richness" is
what determines its value. You may
be shocked to learn the "cream line"
is of little importance In selecting
milk for an infant.
The milk from any cow Is too
rich. It must be diluted with water
to make it like human mTlk. So
the quantity of cream does not count
The Important thing Is to make
sure the milk is free from dangerous
germs or haoteria. It must come
from a healthy cow. It must he
cooled at once after the milking and
be kept at low temperature from
that time tlU It la time t* prepare
the baby's mixture.
Just how safe this milk will con
tinue to be. depends on the tempera
ture at which It is kept. Harmful
(terms do not multiply much so long
as the temperature Is below SO de
grees. If milk that is good to be
gin with, la kept at this point, it
will stay ^ood for twenty-four hours,
until the next supply Is delivered.
Attention to the feeding bottles and
the milk will go far towards good
health for your baby Tou must not
overlook this for a single day.
