Substitute Mother

Robin had two baby girls.  Unfortunately she only loves on of them.  We noticed a couple of days ago that she was refusing to nurse the smaller baby.  I had to go out several times a day and hold her still while the baby nursed.  This was not fun and my thighs and butt are still recovering.

Luckily Lily gave birth the other day and with a little encouragement she is now nursing Robin's starving baby.

  1. How sweet...I think Lily should get an apple in her feed trough for being such a good sub mummy.

    Glad you could avoid having to bottle feed the wee one yourself.

  4. Whew, I'm so glad this worked out for you. I wonder what I'll do if I have a similar situation. Got a kid bottle on hand just in case.
