    Hello all, we have exciting news. This morning we came out to 2 little babies. Meadow who we thought was only going to have 1 ended up having a girl and a boy. All seems to be going well, we dipped the babies navels in iodine and gave Meadow some karosyrup water, cookies, food, and penicillin.

    Was there a problem that you had to give penicillin?

    No, just to help her heal and prevent infection especially whereas we didnt know until this morning that she gave birth. We don't think there was any complications and both babies seem small and happy. Is there anything different you would suggest doing?

    Good to hear no complications. As far as I know antibiotics are only given if you have to “go in” or if there was another cause for possible infection.

    Congratulations on the kids. Definitely only give penicillin if there is a problem. You should always do a full course of penicillin which is at least 5 days. Don't do that this time but in the future.

    Make sure, if you haven't yet, that each teat works well. Squirt a few squirts from each one to make sure the plug is out. Have you seen the babies eat, pee and poop yet? Congratulations!

    Last but not least, Nutmeg had triplets tonight. 1 girl and 2 boys. That was very stressful, baby 1 had his head back and baby 3 was backwards. All three babies have sea legs, the boys especially. We heard to give them vitamin e with selenium orally, is this true? I will share pictures in the morning

    Yes, give 0.5cc of vitamin b complex orally, a pea sized drop of selenium/vitamin e gel and an extra vitamin e capsule squirted in their mouths.
    I'm sorry it was a rough Kidding. That's no fun but it sounds like you have it handled...great job!
