Sleep For Baby Health Department's Advice [Newspaper Article] — The Lyndhurst Shire Chronicle — 13 September 1944
Sleep For Baby Health Department's Advice I A young infant should sleep from 20 to 22 hours out of the 5M. After being changed and fed, he should be put back into his cot, being laid on the opposite side to that on which he slept last. If 'nursing' and 'rock- | ing' to sleep are avoided, the baby will never expect it, and will soon I develop the habit of going to sleep without any effort on the mother's part. Playing with baby prior to put ting him down for the night is a most injurious habit. It produces excite ment and results in sleeplessness. Baby should be prepared for bed, fed and then put down for the night in tHfe dark and left to go to sleep by himself. An infant's eyes should not be ex posed to the glare of electric light and it is most unwise for him to be kept up 'until Daddy comes home' or for the entertainment of evening visitors. Mothers should endeavor to take baby to the Baby Health Centre re guarly each week for weighing and expert advice. .

FINE RECORD BY MOLONG LODGE When Bro. P.
