Of (lie two, however, iin- [lertecdhif Is the more dllTiciilt lo correct. . One iiiellmd Ls to stimulate the urcasts by means of a puinii. Another Is lo Improve (lie mother's physical condition. In that event. also, it may be advisable ^for the mot'ncr lo be relieved of her' child's care except for feeding. The chilli may be given 'some supplementary food. Nursing/however, should be attempted regularly so as to give the brciisls the stimulation that comes from the suckling of the baby. A baby Ural Is getting too much milk, will vomit, or regurgitate some of the food. Sometimes he wi)l .(invc i •' colic. Usually, however; the ovcr-jibiin'rl- ancc of milk lessens nfuir tlie first few days.

Tills should be done nt cadi nursing, until the mother knows Mow much milk the baby is getting regularly from the breasts. If the mother is unable to weigh the baby regularly, she nmy tell something from the way in which the child nurses. If a baby is very hungry, he will nurse "hungrily, and with considerable '-pulling power." If there Is plcniy milk-, the baby, will seldom nurse more than five or six minutes.
