Hey Y'all. Having sort of a similiar problem. I just lost a baby a week ago and I don't want to lose this one. Mama had baby last night and I haven't seen baby suck on her yet. He looks strong and healthy and wagging tail. I even missed work this time(boss not too happy). Anyways, please help. Mama wants baby to suck but baby won't . I put the baby up to the teat and baby won't suck. I milked the mama and let the baby taste it and he liked it. I even stuck a finger in his mouth and he suck on it. Put him up to the teat but won't take it. I tried this 3 times already. I have bottle fed babies before and I agree, it is better for mama to do the job. any suggestions? :?
