    WOW- she is enormous, and oh my is she beautiful........I do think her cha cha looks normal too, watch it as she grows but I think she's okay

    How is Jasmine feeling? Are you bottle feeding the kid or is she able to nurse enough from Jasmine?

    Im sending you an email now Jen.....

    Jasmine is doing okay. Very sore. We are drenching her with nutradrench, water and probois 1 oz per hour. We did get the baby to latch on and she is sucking like crazy! I did syringe her some of Wildflower's milk just to hold her off but really was trying to get in the colostrum. The kid is full of energy! We are choosing a name now..... :ponder:

    drum roll please.... introducing our newest girl Proctor Hill Athena! She is a big girl! Jasmine is still (obviously) in a lot of pain. We did get Athena on this morning but have been syringing her since. Should I be worried about Jasmine becoming too full? She is in too much pain for me to hold her and let her nurse or to even milk her out. Suggestions please!

    hope Jasmine feels better soon.

    Awe Athena is a great name- when you register her just stuck a DJ in front of Athena (for Don Juan)

    Yes I would be worried about Jasmine becoming too full, are you giving her anything for pain right now?
    If she had banamine I think that would help her out a lot- you could put warm compresses on her udder for some relief and try your best to milk even just a little out of her udder if she becomes engorged

    I remember when I had just had my son- and well standing in a hot shower or hot towels were like the only relief for me there, Im sure you know what I mean!!!!

    You really need to try and milk her out a bit. Don't want her to come down with mastitis. You have her on Antibioitics right? I assume you do, just reminding you in case you forgot. Ask the vet for a shot of banamine for her to help with the pain.
