*Read at the S.A. Medical Congress, East London, October 6 to 11, 1947. The application of scientific method and certain basic principles to infant-feeding has simplified and standardised infant nutrition. Reference is made to cow's milk dilutions and the time for introducing dietary supplements. The self-demand feeding schedule is discussed. Feeding principles are tabulated and their application illustrated by means of a simple feeding method. While no attempt has been made to cover the entire field of artificial feeding in this short paper, conditions peculiar to South Africa are stressed.
