    Anyone have an good tips for cleaning up mom Post-birthing?? It's been a week plus a couple of days... so I think she has significantly slowed on the yucky oozing slime.... So what do you all use? her tail is REALLY
    crusted up!! (yuck)

    You could use some warm soapy water and a cloth or sponge and gently work the crust loose.

    We shave the tail. Try to get it done before kidding, but just did one that was all crusty used a old 30 blade. Then baby wipes to clean em up better. We milk, so we try to keep them clean as possible.

    A diaper soaked and warmed up I'm the microwave holds lots of water and stays warm a long time. Maybe that would help loosen up the crusties. I had a ff last year with a congested utter and I had to do this and message several times a day and it really helped clean her up too.
