Health, Medical Treatment, Human Development, Sanitation
Gives advice on nursing infants. This includes suggestions for types of medicine to administer to children, an attack on 'Sanitary enthusiasts' for their recommendations regarding fastening children's clothes, and the claim that 'sickly growth' follows from constant suckling (218). Concludes with the dictum, 'Let us subdue mere Nature at her first start, and make her civilised in her beginnings' (219).
