    Good Morning,

    My mini-nubian twins (born on Jan 14, 2014) that are pulled for bottle (but on mom's milk) have developed a case of milk scours. I put baking soda in their bottle for their next feeding and also gave them a dose of probiotics, but is there any other treatment method to help them clear this mess up?

    Is it common for kids with milk scours to not want to eat quite as much as before they started scouring? The kids are still eating, just not as much as yesterday. They're active, jumping and playing, and showing no other signs of issues. The scours seems to be settling in both twins as well.

    How much do they weigh? How much milk per bottle are you giving? How many bottles do you feed per day?

    The kids are doing much better today. No more scours and very healthy appetite! Very healthy kids! 1 is a nigerian dwarf and two are mini nubians.
