The mother gave birth this morning about 6 a.m. One didn't make it and the other, well, being new to this I kept a close watch all morning but never did see the lamb nurse. It acted like it couldn't find where to go, searching the front of the mother more than the back. After my fourth trip out to check on them, I checked the mother but couldn't get any milk, nothing. Called the vet and was told to try anything even the soy milk and baby bottle I had already. Little one couldn't get much action so I drove to the feed store and got milk replacement and a big bottle but soft nipple. That didn't work either. Little one couldn't get it going so I used a syringe. It caught on real fast. Drank a full one then slept, woke and drank another 1 1/2, fell asleep and is now awake again. It is strong and walking. I now that I have it in the house in a huge box. I take it out and wrap it in a towel, put it on my lap and feed it. It is working so far. Anyone else experienced with this way to care for a newborn? And, another older ewe is loosing her wool. She is with lamb too, first time. Is this a hormone thing? The other two ewes and ram are doing fine. They all have a great appetite. Should I be concerned?
