Anyone had any luck getting a 5 week old to take a bottle? I have a kid who seems to be always following her dam around wanting to nurse. Her dam will stop to get a drink at the water bucket and the kid will be behind her trying to nurse. She's the smallest of triplets and doing very well, just this one thing. So what do you think the chances are that I can convince her to take a bottle? I'm going to try. I offered one to her this AM but she wasn't too keen on the idea. So I'm going to work with her. I think she should stay on milk to around 12 weeks or so due to her small size and eagerness to eat. Her soon-to-be new owners are going to be coming through our way next weekend and the other kid they're getting is 8 weeks this week so they could go next weekend. This would work out ideally considering she would otherwise not be ready till almost September and the other kid would be 3 months + by then. So wish me luck! I think I might very well need it! At least I do have two bottle babies currently on bottle to help get the idea accross to her.
