How long after birth should she pass the after birth it's been a hr and its still hanging the baby nurses for a minute than looks around searching and try's again could it not be getting any milk ? The mom won't let me help so I've tried to stay back but don't want to wait too long too help if I need too

Can you touch the baby? You can feel if the babies belly is full (firm, but not too firm) or not.
As for the afterbirth, it can take a while.

Ok she just passed it and the baby's belly is kinda soft not like a puppy's when it's full though so maybe she is getting some ill keep an eye on her

I have found that it will take a while for the babies to totally figure out to nurse sometimes :) Now is it a doeling or a buckling? :D Make sure you handle the kid a lot so he/she is nice and friendly :)

Congrats! :)

Make sure to handle the baby a lot, even though they make a fuss it's important.
