    Perfect! Great job!

    When I had several babies I colored the white fur on the inside of a rear leg with a different colored sharpie. It was just a dot, and then a corresponding colored dot on the top of the column for my record keeping.

    Has anyone had their pinkies peel? We assume it is normal and all three are in different places. And nothing that is an obvious cause for alarm but we did notice. It's not getting worse anywhere like spreading. They live on a heating pad in a blanket pouch so they just could be dry from that?

    Do you have the heating pad under their container set on low?
    What type of container do you have them in?
    What I do when this happens is I take a small baby food jar,
    clean it out well, and then put a (small piece) of damp sponge in it. Put that on
    the same side as the heating pad, and that will give the container
    a little moisture. Some poke holes in the top of the jar. If you do
    this, make sure that the sharp points are facing inside the jar and
    not outside. Others will leave the top off completely. Probably
    safer to poke a lot of holes on the top.
    Make sure to feel the sponge daily so it's stays damp.

    Yes always on low with the heat, half on half of in case they get hot and want to crawl to the cooler side. It is a zip up container that has mesh windows for circulation. Fleece blankets. I will try the damp sponge. Thank you!

    Quick update on the babies. They are doing very well. Taking around 4ml every 3-4 hours during the day and one feeding at night. Fur and ears are developing, they can now hear us. Waiting patiently for those little eyes to open,as they do we are working in FV 20/50. The females are Willow and Juniper, the male we named Teak.

    Little Teak has not been taking his usual 7ml for the last three feeds. More like 4ish ml. Lazy acting and wanting to sleep. He should open his eyes any day now. Should w3 start FV 20/50 early? Bathroom is normal. Please someone tell me this is normal behavior.

    Also, if we are in need of antibiotics for pneumonia in case he starts clicking what do we need to ask for?

    You would need Baytril (animal antibiotic) of Cipro (Human)
    Clavamox or Augmentin.
    Call around to family and friends. You will need just one pill
    and we can break it down for you.
    What formula are you feeding now.
    You can definitely switch to FV 20/50 if you want,
    just do a slow transition so as not to cause diarrhea.

    He finally started taking his normal amount this afternoon! We are going to start the two formulas together this weekend.
