I started my waiting thread last night as today is day 145. No signs or changes in mama today. Went to grab dinner and a few things at the store..... Came home to a wet baby on the ground. Hooray for a doeling! FF is doing well. I think it's just a single. Been about an hour since birth She's cleaning baby, but won't let her nurse much. Any advice?

Congrats on a doeling that's terrific!:cool:
Is mama standing up now? Kids dont nurse much at all at first, a few sucks here & there but quite often.
Dont forget to worm new mama, the stress of birthing brings on the parasites.

I knew you would miss it! Darn it! Congrats on your new little one :) Has momma passed her placenta (or is it even coming out)?

Here's a picture of our new doeling, Magnolia. We named her after our favorite tree in the yard. Obviously, being our first kid, she stays here! So proud of our FF Caramel.
