    Bring her inside. Always make sure she is warm before attempting to fee - take her rectal temp with a human thermometer - at least 101.5. You may have to microwave a dry bag of
    rice or beans, wrap in a towel and put it under her tummy. You want her laying upright, now flat. First get her body temp up, them feed warm milk from mom in a bottle. Just a couple of ounces at first. If she has no suck reflex you may have to syringe feed her.

    No just putting her head down when girl would start sniffing her face. Baby girl is eating well. I’m milking momma and feeding her milk. Baby boy is doing good and mama is taking good care of him. Girl is still wobbly and can’t walk forward but she has backwards down LoL.

    She sips the nipple but I can push it into her mouth and she eventually latches on.

    Yes, totally normal. That can go on for a couple weeks.

    Yes she passed the placenta. Just quite a bit of blood still coming out. No tissue.
