G. Shubina, 1940
The poster says: “Our children must not have diarrhea!” The text at the bottom gives direct instructions to prevent the illness: “Until 6 months age feed the baby with breast milk only. Then add supplemental feeding under medical supervision. Do not wean the baby in summer. In summer dress the baby in suitable light clothes. In summer while outdoors the baby should be in a shady place. Wash baby’s toys, plates and dishes and your own hands thoroughly. Protect the baby and its food from flies. Visit children clinics in time”.
The merry baby on this poster is holding a rattle in his hand. The blossoming branches indicate spring time. A good example of socialist realism it is, where the baby’s face expression quite resembles the one found on posters and paintings devoted to building of new Soviet factories or gathering an ample harvest.
