I finally decided Heidi's baby doeling has had enough milk, (she's 3 months old)and I need more...so today is the first day she has been separated all day...she has done ok, but is getting a little hoarse.She seems to calm down until she hears someone(me,kids,my mom,etc.) or her mom. Heidi has been doing well with it and has called for her only minimally....but I feel bad :( If I had another doe in milk I would let her stay on mom longer...although she is getting chubby.....:rolleyes:
So for now, her and Madeline (another doeling) are paired up....

Here's hoping it gets easier to do with experience...her sister was sold at 9 weeks so I didn't have to see/hear it....:eek:

On the other hand, I get to see how much milk I get tonight....:cool: I have a good friend who is not only allergic to gluten but has not been able to drink milk for a Loooonnng time. She tried the goats milk and she didn't get sick :D so i can't wait to give her more!

Take heart, it does get easier. :) I still feel bad for the kids - well, except for the drama queens/kings, anyway. Yes, weaning is much, much easier if they are not within hearing distance.
