    Default Suddenly a formula feeding mum!

    I rescued this orphan lamb today, it had been born, and then rolled down a steep bank, and was hanging on by the skin of it's teeth poor bub.

    I don't think she had any colostrum, so she might not make it, but fingers crossed! The 3 - 4 hourly feeds are killing me!!

    Awwww, you're a Mummy again
    Poor little thing! Looks like the boys are enjoying the company though!

    Re 3 hourly feeds; MM, you are the BH lactivist god. If you can BF 3 boys for how ever many years you did then 3 hourly bottle feeds should be a walk in the park!! I'm glad to hear the little lamb is in such good care.

    How gorgeous is that little lamb. Going back to three hourly feeds must be challenging once you are out of the habit of night feeds! I hope she stays healthy

    What a cute little lamb Hope the little one makes it! Sheep are good pets (had some growing up). Good on you for taking on the 3hourly feeds!

    So good so far! Pooing out heaps of meconium, geez it's nasty stuff! If that clears out well she might be OK.

    You're a good woman! Every time I rescue a lamb the three hourly feeds have me scratching my head thinking WTF am I doing? Lol

    I know there is a colostrum sub for dogs not sure if it extends to sheep though. Maybe give a rural vet a call and see what they suggest as a sub.
