We just had two babies. The first went real smooth. Mom and baby united and baby started nursing right away. The second was from another Momma. It was a challenge. She was carrying twins. Here first baby came alright, but the other was deformed and stillborn and had to be pulled by the vet. When she had her first baby, she wouldn't let her nurse. I'm guessing she was nervous about the other still being inside and not moving. So we milked her and fed the baby with a syringe. Then we took Mamma to the vet. This brings me to my questions? 1. How do we get the baby to nurse from Mamma. The baby seems to think my wife is the food source. My wife, God bless her heart, has been getting up every 3 hours, milking the Mamma and feeding baby. 2. How long do we keep Mamma and baby separated from the herd? Thanks in advance for all the advice. Oh BTW they're small breeds. Pygmy Daddy and Pygmy/? or Dwarf/?
