    Hi guys, sorry to be such a pest but its been 3 days and Maude still hasn’t poo’d. Her belly doesn’t seem bloated and its nice and soft still, but Im such a worrier. When do you think I should really start to worry? D: Not that Im not worrying now.

    I will take her to the vet if a certain time has past and she still hasn’t poo’d. But I just needed some extra opinions.

    Hi, Moosey, you’re not a pest and I love the name Maude. Hmmm, if she doesn’t poop at all on the third day, I’d be wanting to take her to the vet. However, in the photo she looks gorgeous, doesn’t look like there’s much wrong with her 🙂

    Thanks JCat. 😀 I actually took her out this morning to see her momma. Luckily the momma was still making milk and even wanted to take care of the baby. As much as it may be a hassle I’d like to let her drink from her momma at least twice a day. Since the heat has died down, I can sit out there and watch.

    The baby remembered her momma and the momma gave the baby a good bathe and everything. Still no poo but Im hoping the momma’s milk will help.

    Change of plans! I decided that it would be best if the mum is the one that feeds and bathes her. Although this means I’ll have to sit with them the whole time, it is okay. The mom is very friendly and after each feeding I make sure the mom gets plenty of food too! I may feed the mom before the baby eats so she will lay down and sleep easier. Things are looking good! :3

    Hey everyone, just this morning Maude let out a little poop while her mom was licking her. Then just 30 minutes ago while her mom was licking her again she let out two BIG ONES. I feel really bad, she seemed to strain a little bit but afterwards she was a lot better. From now on she is staying on mother’s milk strictly. We have a extra room in our house for laundry with a door to the outside, I just have to let the momma in when its time for the baby to eat. Things are looking great for Maude!!

    P.S Both her eyes are open! :3
