Hello again everybody!
I so enjoy bottle feeding our Kinder kids!
We once had one kid that was raised on her mother. She is now a sweetie but then she was a little wild.
She would get all the goats worked up and running around the pen just because she felt like it, she would never let us touch her and didn’t even come when we had a bottle.
I remind myself of having to go through training her when I had to stay up most of the night to feed the kids. I enjoy feeding our kids much more now that they sleep through the night and drink less milk.
If you havn’t bottle fed your kids before here are some basic tips.
- Hold the baby the first few time you try to bottle feed. This way the baby can’t move around when you and the baby are first trying this.
- Hold the kid’s neck up and as straight as possible.
- Make sure the milk is not all dripping out of its mouth or it won’t get good nutrition.
And have LOTS of fun!!! 🙂
I hope you have a blessed evening.
Until the whole world hears,
Beth Joy Wood
