Bottle-fed babies are the most fre­

and tbto fact furnishes another strong
argument In favor of broast feeding.
Diarrhea in a bottle-fed baby Is also

of food Tbe bottle should be omitted
for K, 12 or 24 hours, according to
tbe severity of tbe attack, and In place
of the milk should be glvon aa much

will take.
Food ahould not be withheld for
more than 24 hours, without the ad­
vice of a doctor. When tho bottle 1*
resumed, the food should be much
weaker than before; water ahould bo
substituted for at least half th* milk
previously given. The milk shixild be
skimmed, and the sugar omitted.
The return to th* former feeding
should be made gradually by adding a
little more milk each day and begin­

the attack has been, tb* more slowly
should changes be made.
If the baby la on "mlzed” feeding,

should use every means In her power
during the hot weather to keep the
baby cool. In the heat of tbe day the
baby should wear only a diaper, with
possibly one other thin garment.
