For the Academy, Dr. Gillespie and Mr. Lynch replied as follows:
We appreciate your remarks concerning the Academy's cooperation in preparing Redbook's Young Mother manual. Interestingly, we have received 33 letters concerning development of this publication. Thirty-one of these letters have supported our efforts to provide young mothers with information about infant care through the Young Mother manual. Pediatricians writing the Academy have suggested that the manual be sent to 24 hospitals now not receiving it.
