First off Congratulations!! And I also have a pygmy/nigi that kids early! Tilly had hers on 142 and this was her first set of triplets. Did they all nurse? Did you make sure they got colostrum into their little bellies if they didn't nurse? VERY IMPORTANT. I had 6 girls and 3 boys this year and to me , the boys are ALWAYS slower than the girls, your girls may seem opposite since you are not used to getting girls, and if the buckling is bigger he will be stronger and fight the girls for the teats. Nutri drench ALL of them including mom, I give a full pump to my kids which is about a 3 cc syringe, just be careful the little ones don't inhale it. I know your busy with a kitty but you really need to make sure those babies eat in the first 2 hours after they are born, gets them off to a good start. And since the last one came backwards she may have aspirated some birth fluids, which you can help her along by turning her upside down and thumping her ribs to get her to cough.
