Our doe just kidded Sunday night and she is not keeping his little butt clean. She is feeding him, but every morning it is covered in goopy mess and stick to his bottom so no more can come out. In the past, the mothers have kept all that cleaned off. She is feeding him well and taking care of him otherwise, but this scares me. It is normal baby poop consistency and looks healthy otherwise, I am just having to clean him up myself and am worried this will mess up his pooping schedule or clog him up. Any advice?

Just a followup for anyone who is following this, I ended up taking him to the vet and he had some sort of bacterial thing going on from not getting the colostrum he needed. A little antibiotics, pedialyte and some bene-bac and he is good to go!
