Infants Feeding Lessons Require Time and Patience By GAYNOR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor Tor real hand - to - mouth living, watch a toddler's first fumbling tfforts at self-feeding. He proves that fingers were made before spoons. He wobbles, spills, gives up, wades in again. Neatness takes plenty of practice by baby and lots of patience from mother. Child experts suggest letting baby first play with an empty cup •nd spoon to get the hang of the clumsy new tools. Other ways to encourage the young beginner In self-feeding are: 1. Allow plenty of time for meals. Let the toddler set his own •ating pace. Stay relaxed. Expect spills. 2. Seat him comfortably at an •asy height for hands and feet. >. Furnish tools that are practical rather than pretty. Give him a straight - handled spoon with a shallow, rounded bowl; an unbreakable, light - weight mug, a broad - based dish; later an adult's salad fork. 4. Be ready to take over when baby* gets tired or discouraged. Good system is to feed him the main dish, let him spoon up desert. B. Small portions help, and finger foods cut to size. First attempts at self . feeding are made easier by convenient foods like bannna and orange sec- tions and the hard new teething biscuits that fit small hands. They help hand-to-mouth practice, exercise those first little teeth. First chewing brings another change — to junior foods. Many mothers mix some of the familiar strained food with the finely chopped Junior variety until the young teether gets more accustomed to the different texture.

Last year, 1952, saw the record- smashing arrival of almost 4,000,000 babies—3,889,000 is the estimate. That's reason enough for observing this day. Also cheering news is the continuing drop in the infant mortality rate, which last year reached its lowest point of 28.0 per 1000 live births. For the third successive year, this rate has been under 30, a startling contrast to 40.4 only a decade ago, in 1942. The reduction of infant mortality within the past 10 years can be credited with a saving of 5,000 Infant lives In 1952 alone, notes Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. Contributing to this gain in infant lives Is today's percentage of hospital births {88.9 per cent of registered births), and vastly improved nutrition for mothers and babies, notably during the critical prenatal period.' Diet Is high on the doctor's "what-to-do" list. American mothers have access to accurate information on the well-rounded diet from medical and government sources, nutrition experts, food writers. Mothers are using this knowledge daily and babies are gaining faster, showing their good health in many ways. For instance, today's babies double their weight sooner than did newborns 10 years ago, according to pediatrics research in a group of New York City hospi- IT'S EASY TO BUG-CLEAN AS YOU HOUSECLEAN ttAMHU INSECT BOMB KILLS HYING INSECTS FAST Just a flick of the finger and this fast-acting Insect Bomb goes to work for you to protect your precious home fur- nishingi from moths and other flying insects.

"So good health for « child means • loving home, * wholesome neighborhood, a small class at school, an understanding teacher. "If a child Is handicapped or In trouble, he desperately needs special, but also kindly services. There are tens of thousands of children in America still who lack these essentials. They can't speak for themselves. Who'll bother to find their unmet needs—in each community? Who'll speak up for them?"
