    I noticed this morning that Sabrina's teats look really pink. Just the teats, not the whole udder. So I am thinking that they could be chapped. Baby is starting to suckle pretty good now too so it could be that they are raw from the nursing. Is there anything I can put on them to help but that won't hurt baby if she suckles?????

    Bag Balm is amazing stuff and it has hundreds of uses. Our dogs get it whenever they come in with small cuts and abrasions :wink:
