170,241 Letters From Mothers
Thousands of babies have been bathed, fed
dressed, put to bed, trained under the care
of THE LADIES' HOME JOURNAL.
P TO THE PRESENT moment there
have been enrolled in the "Young
Mothers' Registry" more than 40,000
babies, whose progress has been painstak
ingly charted, watched and directed by The
Journal. In five years this department has
received more than 69,288 letters from mothers.
Last year The Journal physician, Doctor
Coolidge, replied to 22,146 letters letters
asking questions that were vital, questions
that must be answered, questions with which
anxious mothers would turn only to a source
which had their implicit confidence.
This work is endorsed by leading physi
cians, and many hospitals have asked for and
are using the feeding formulas worked out by
ago determined. But a young home, with
empty spaces picked out for the new chairs it
hopes to have soon, with plans for redeco
rating, with ambition to have more clothes,
more luxuries, and with the education of a
family brightening the horizon ahead.
And a baby or little child means a real
home. Not a halfway-house between the
North Shore and Palm Beach, or a place to
rest between tango-tea and Tetrazzini. It
means a normal, earnest, home-loving home,
dreaming upward, eager for all that is new
and progressive, with thousands of wants just
developing ando with an income increasing
year by year.
Since "Flossie Fisher's Funnies" began to
appear in the magazine, 100,953 letters have
been written to The Journal about them by
children, with the assistance of their mothers.
