    I think I know how she feels. I was always super huge when I was pregnant. Remember to post baby pictures!

    Re: Christy due soon WIDE LOAD We Have Kids

    Last night Christy gave birth to 2 girls :girl: :girl: and 1 boy :boy: . #1 was coming out nose first so we had to push her back in and find the front legs. #2 was coming out with one back leg we had to find the other one. #3 came out back legs first and didn't need any help. Long night.
    We got all but one to nurse. We used a syringe to get colostrum in to her. It is weird she knew she was suppose to go to the back of Mom to get something. She punches the udder but when the teat is put in front of her mouth even with milk on it or the teat with milk in your hand she doesn't open up. It's like she doesn't have a clue what else to do back there. [​IMG]When we feed her with the syringe she didn't even chew on it and we had to try many times to get her to swallow the milk. We got up several times in the night to syringe feed her and make sure the other 2 got some drinks. We are going to try bottle feeding. She doesn't seem to be lacking energy. I hope we don't have to tube feed her. Syringe baby and Tube baby just don't have the same ring to it as bottle baby. :lol: Other than that everybody is doing great, up and walking around and being baby goats. Mom is busy licking and licking and licking.

    congratulations.... :greengrin: :leap:

    sounds like the one kid is just dumb to the teat no sucking reflex.... work with the kid to teach it ...the teat ..force open the mouth ..squirt some of mom's milk.. it the mouth from the teat.....have someone tickle "stimulate baby".. at the tail head and back area.......hold the kids mouth on the teat and squeeze a little milk from the teat..(with the kids mouth still attached.)... into the kids mouth...keep repeating and with time and alot of work....(keep trying)... a little trick .. is to keep the kid a little hungry.. it will be easier ..to teach to the teat.... the kid may start to suckle... eventually the kid will learn.... :greengrin: ..keep up the syringing until the kid learns to suck, but keep an eye on it.....wink:
    give some nutra drench and I would give a shot of vit B complex for appetite...if your area is deficient in selenium give a bo-se shot to.... :hug:

    Probably needs some Bo-Se, that will help a lot with those sucking muscles. Also you can use some vitamin E gel caps, just snip the end off and squirt one in her mouth a couple times a day.
