Isn't this a beautiful illustration?

It comes from a little booklet from the 50s called - "The New Baby", produced by the Church of Scotland and probably given to parents at the baby's baptism.
It is full of advice - not sure if there were different versions for baby boys and baby girls. But this one assumes that every baby is male (I think that was quite a common thing in those days - male being normal (!?!)and female being ..... !).
I think this is the cutest little baby picture - seems that the inside illustrations are from "The Nursery Cookery Book" by Mrs K Jameson.
So, great advice and well needed, because, as it says in this ad from the 50s - we wouldn't want baby turning into a Two Spoon Pete!
Have a great weekend!
