I have a 6 week old doeling (Arabella) who has been a bottle baby, she has done wonderful! However, she has gotten big enough that she sucks too hard on the nipple now and starts to cough as she asperates a little of it. She's a bit of a piggy! Because of this I want to start pan feeding her. We tried today but no go! I dipped her nose in it a few times, but she just wasn't interested in drinking it. I finally gave her a half bottle at 2pm (she get 2 bottles a day normally now one in the morning and one in the evening) I feel like it is either pan feed her or wean her, and I don't want to wean her yet! We want her big enough to breed in the fall so we can start getting milk (nubian). I've been told they grow better if you don't wean them til 4 months, and she is not even 2 months yet. I have tried a new nipple that doesn't let out so much but it didn't matter, she still coughed. Does anyone have any ideas on getting her to pan feed?
