Do you know if the baby got colostrum? Are you feeding her mom's milk or what? How much are you feeding her?

Also, how much does she weigh? She should only be getting 10-12% of her body weight in ounces per day. For example lets take a 10 lb goat. 10 lbs x 16 oz = 160 oz. 160oz x 10% = 16 oz per day minimum divided by 4 feedings per day = 4 oz per feeding. Adjust as necessary. Also, I would switch to whole milk from the store, it's better for them. Did you give her colostrum (mom's first milk contains it....kinda of a thick, gooey substance) from mom?
