Hello! We had to pull a kid Monday night because it came head first with no feet. Tuesday she was able to drink from mom and had lots of energy. Wednesday she had some messy poop we had to clean off her and now it is Thursday she is low energy, doesn’t get excited like her sister to eat and is almost dopey. We also haven’t seen her poop since or really drink and latch on by herself. We have given her some bottled milk we took from her mom but does anyone have any advice for low energy kids? We are thinking maybe constipation as she is not skinny but we haven’t seen her make a bowel movement since. Thank you!!

I would rub a little cayenne pepper in honey on her gum or swipe in her mouth then do an enema. Mix a tablespoon oil or soap with warm water. Use a 3 cc syringe and gently fill baby up until a little squirts back out. Massage tummy and get her walking around. If she pushes enema put with little to no poop..gently refill her. It can take 30 to 40 minutes to get results.

Best wishes

A little Karo syrup or something similar that is sweet for energy. Spectogard for possible belly ache, and definitely do a warm water and Dawn dishsoap or mineral oil enema to ensure she is not constipated. Definitely check her temperature.
