May I add a few words to this topic:
The causes of premature deaths of children:
Many; no vaccinations at those times; no water treatment, just well water. No treatment of milk; the milk was used as it came from the cow; and most important the mothers were mostly farming wives and had to spend much time on the fields. The babies were wrapped in the blankets and the duvet carrying cushion and put on the ground close to mother, while she worked in the field. A photo of this ‘cushion’ is to be seen here: https://hrastovac.net/photo-collection/christenings/; another important reason, no medical practitioner close by. Just to mention a few reasons.
As for the heating: Each house did have a stove-oven combination that was used to cook on, bake in that was also heating the kitchen.
I grew up in that area, and the baby in the right photo above is me.
Keep safe, stay well,
