It's a miracle!
After the whole head restraint situation; she completely lost interest in him, didn't talk to him, ignored his cries etc.
Just went to hold her for a feeding and out of nowhere she started talking to him again. Curious, I gave some slack. She looked over at him. Gave his butt a lil nuzzle. Didn't move her teats away! So I backed away a little more and more. She just kept talking to him and nuzzling him so I kept inching away. She started to walk away but he had enough of a feed and she was still talking to him so I saw it as an improvement!
Just went to put the feed bucket away. I hear her still softly making her sound and - smek smek smek. Shine my headlamp over - sure enough! She was letting him suck away all on their own!
