Dosing Children. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 13 January 1898

Dosing Children. Some mothers are ever fond of giv- ing their children powders and doses of one sort or another. It is very easy to do permanent harm in this way ; and indeed, a case has just come to light of a mother's unwittingly poisoning her child with " soothing syrup." I The doctor, as soon as he saw the body, formed the opinion that death had resulted from narcotic poisoning, and a post-mortem examination con- firmed the diagnosis. He told the coroner that the drug on which the syrup depended almost entirely for its action was moqihia, and it contained nearly a grain of it to the ounce. Half a teaspoonful of the syrup contained one-thiitieth of "a grain, while one-thirtieth of a grain given to a child four weeks old had been known to cause death. It was pointed out that the mother did not know the danger of the syrup, and therefore a verdict was returned of accidental death through the over-use of soothing-syrup.

Open-air Exercise. Nothing is more important for a young child than an opportunity for daily exercise in the open air. After the first two weeks, the young infant should be taken out of doors for several hours daily, during the summer season, and for an hour or two even in tile winter season, except in the very coldest weather. It should, of course be properly protected, to avoid chilling or too great exposure to cold. The tonic effect of cold air is as healthful to an infant as to a grown-up person, but it is easily possible for a young child to be exposed in such a manner as to produce congestion of the lungs, and serious, perhaps fatal, injury from bronchitis or pneumonia, as the result of injudicious exposure. Daily open-air exercise is the best of all means of developing constitu- tional resisiance against catarrh and consumption, and the various maladies which find their origin in taking cold. Children who enjoy this advantage are seldom subject to colds, as are other children...
