Infant Feeding: An Annotated Bibliography.
Crowhurst, Christine Marie, Comp.; Kumer, Bonnie Lee, Comp.
Intended for parents, health professionals and allied health workers, and others involved in caring for infants and young children, this annotated bibliography brings together in one selective listing a review of over 700 current publications related to infant feeding. Reflecting current knowledge in infant feeding, the bibliography has as its goal the increase in awareness of and access to information available on infant feeding practices, breast feeding, and normal infant nutrition. Selection of items included is based on two main concepts: definition of infancy as the first year of life and identification of parameters constituting nutrition of the normal healthy infant. Additional subject areas are covered, including infant feeding in developing countries and nutrition of the preterm and low-birthweight infant. With the exception of a few items, all materials have been published since 1977. Items developed prior to 1977 are included only if they accurately reflect current theory and practice. Materials listed reflect a variety of formats, including books, pamphlets, periodical articles, and audiovisual presentations. Entries are categorized into sections according to content, and, excepting periodical articles and audiovisual materials, cost and ordering information are provided. (Author/RH)
