    OK can you look at the photo of the syringe I posted and tell me where
    the mark on the syringe is that you're feeding her.
    Is she taking more than 1 whole syringe?

    Yes, one whole syringe and an additional .4cc

    Thank you!
    Try to up that a little bit at a time.
    Here's a great chart to help you figure out the "rule of thumb"
    It goes by weight in grams and then go across and you'll see the
    5%, 6% and 7% recommended amounts.
    Once she is stablized, we will start going higher than the rule
    of thumb IF she still seems hungry, and we'll do that SLOWLY.
    That will be somewhere down the line though, ok?
    I have a feeling that once she's on the FV20/50 you will see the weight
    going on faster.

    Sky,

    Tomorrow you will receive the Fox Valley 20/50 formula and the formula warming cup. Cooling and re-heating formula degrades it and microwaving in never recommended. Get 2 small glass measuring cup as shown in the photo at Kroger/Martins/Meijer etc. Using a small spoon measure 1 equal part 20/50 and 1 equal part Puppy Esbilac powder into the glass tumbler. Dump the mix onto a dry paper towel or dry container and set aside. Wherever the combination measures to you now need 2 parts water. So if it's 1 Tbsp of FV and 1 Tbsp of Esb that equals 2 Tbsp of formula. Now fill the glass tumbler with 4 Tbsps of water and microwave water only for 20 seconds, do not boil! Then add the 2 Tbspns dry formula to the water and mix well. Cap refrigerate and let sit for up to 24 hours to absorb water. It will appear watery and nothing should be floating on the top - if it is stir in well. Make only enough to use in 2 days and keep the 2 tumblers rotating so you don't run out of formula while one is absorbing. While one is absorbing water the other is in use. You have a little baby so small amounts per tumbler for now. For use take out of the refrigerator STIR well and pour only enough for the feeding into the stainless warming cup I sent you. Place the cup in a bowl of warm water from the faucet to avoid overheating and warm to touch. Use the O-Ring syringe I sent you and Miracle nipple. Fill the syringe first then attach the nipple. Remember SLOW or baby will aspirate. Practice first with water in the syringe getting only the tiniest drop. If a stream comes out you are going too quick and will flood the babies mouth with formula.

    Like others said transition slowly first using Goatsmilk and 20/50 before going to the 20/50 - Esb mix. remember anytime you add powder formula to GM you have to do the 2 parts water to 1 part powdered formula before mixing with Goatsmilk, do not dilute the powder with the Goatsmilk!

    Here is my suggestion:

    Get away from the heavy cream

    1/2 Goatsmilk 1/2 20/50 (watch your Goatsmilk it spoils quickly)

    In a week or so 1/2 Esbillac 1/2 20/50 If stools get soft take a step back

    At about 6 weeks you are going to introduce the Rodent Block and we can advise you on which one as the time nears.

    Just to update folks, I am caring for baby girl right now. Sky really worked hard on these babies and I must say I admire her selflessness in putting her into experienced hands when she wasn't doing well. So, Sky, I'm proud of you.

    I'll call her Sylvia for now and I'll start another thread to update just her stuff in one place. (It's sort of sad here, brother's passing and all.) We can link to it later.

    I know it must be hard turning her over, but she is in great hands with Cava!
