EIGHT MASON CITY Don't Let Your Baby Catch Gold Colds, Pneumonia Are Common in Infants. All mothers want to know what to do when their babies have colds. Don't let your baby catch cold if that is at all possible. Colds and pneumonia are very common in infants. Of all the babies in the United States who die before they are 1 year old, about 20 out of every 100 die of colds and their after effects. "A little cold in a big person may mean a big cold in a little person." A cold in a baby, in addition to being a dangerous thing in itself, may lead to pneumonia or some other serious illness. You must be careful to keep th baby from catching a. cold or any contagious disease. If you have a cold, and must look after the baby, be as careful as possible. A gauze mask (a piece of clean gauze, or a handkerchief tied so that it covers your nose and mouth) should be worn when you are attending to the baby, to lessen his chances of catching your cold. Cover your nose and mouth if you must cough or sneeze and do not cough nor sneeze when you are near the baby. Always wash your hands carefully before handling the baby. Advice Given on How to Give Fruit to Young Children In the case of raw fruits, it is especially important to give only a small amount of any new fruit to a small child at a time and wait to see how it affects the little tot before allowing a larger portion. During the second year, most children are allowed a great variety-of stewed fruits and berries; during the third and fourth years they can begin to eat cer- :ain raw fruits. Apples and pears are among :he first raw fruits to be al- owed. Seedless grapes are usually permitted a child of 3 un- ess there is some special condi- ion which would prohibit the eeding of any food high in cel- ulose. Some children are sensitive o strawberries and break out n a rash or have hives after ating them. Other children owever, can handle them sat- sfactorily. In trying out your hild on raw strawberries se- ect a time when the weather is ot too hot so that you will not e blaming the fruit for the ef- ect of a heat wave and offer ust a small portion to start rith.

David's mother decided to teach him very thoroughly his name, address and telephone number. About half an hour after he had been carefully coached, she tested his memory. An hour later, still dubious, she tried him again and he answered correctly but with a rather puzzled expression on his face. Several hours later, she asked again, "What's your full name?" With quivering- chin, he looked at her and answered, "David--. Mommie, don't you know me?" A story means much more to 3 year olds -if they can play with the "animals in the story " What to Feed Baby in Second Month Remember the second month is the month that you begin to 1. Give the baby orange juice or strained tomato juice. 2. Feed the baby cod liver oil 3. Give the baby tub baths instead of sponge baths. 4. Take off the band and use the sleeveless shirt. , 5. Have a half hour of regular playtime for the baby. Companionship Should Be Built Companionship with the baby cannot be formed too early. The future love of the child for lis parents is built up'by start- ng to bring it out during infancy. The older child readily confides all his troubles in his parents, if he lias complete faith in them. If the father has won his child's faith by his early love and care, his help and guidance will be more sought after in later years. But, for the sake of winning the child to him, he should not sacrifice the child's health and character by choosing the wrong time for doing the right things for the little one. TIME TO WALK The time for walking varies. Some babies start at an earlier age than others. Your baby will start when he is strong enough. Don't urge him. At first, he will be "wobbly" in his "·ait, because his ankles and legs are still weak, but this need not worry you. SHOES FOR WALKING When the baby begins to walk, he must have the right kind of shoes. They should be one-half inch longer and one- quarter inch wider all around ban the foot, when he is bear- ng his weight on his feet.
