One thought on “Winter School for Pediatricians, Ukraine”
Times certainly chgnae. In 1931, the U.S. Department of Labor published a pamphlet entitled, “Sunlight for Babies.” The pamphlet reports, “Every mother who wishes her baby to have robust health should give him regular sun baths from early infancy until he is old enough to play in the sun himself.” It adds, “If the sun’s rays are to help the baby grow properly and to prevent rickets, they must fall directly on the skin and tan it.”Can you imagine showing up to a government office today with a tanned baby?
