1955 Infant Care Booklet


Shipping to United States: $5.50

Here is a book put out by the Dept of Health, Education and Welfare- Social Security Admin. on raising babies! It talks about what newborns are like, what they can do and how they will grow. It is pretty different than today, it says that feeding children as they demand will turn them into a tyrant. At two weeks old, you should start giving them cod liver oil and orange juice, potty training should start at 18 mos. "Formula" is made with milk and sugar. It does however, have some good ideas about dealing with angry toddlers!

It is 9 1/8 x 5 3/4" and has 105 pages. It has some light stains on the cover and has one dog eared page.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
