Remember she is a FF and just gave birth.....things will change some as she is milked. When I have these situations, I find that taking some milk will allow you to get a better grip for the rest. She may not ever have long teats but, being a nub, probably will. You need patience. I have also used a human breast pump on these shorties...to get things adjusted. She's also having some swelling with this new fill.

Ok, remember your own self at new birthing -- swollen, sore, eases off when used! :old

If you keep putting those kids on them, may help everyone. Just my input about it.

I pinned the goat again and the kids nursed again off her and she shocked me with her additude this timeafter kicking me several times and bucking she took a mibute to look at who was nursing off her and she frozen and fell head over heels for both kids finally. she kept putting her noseon mine and looking at me like are you sure these are mine lol she then looked at them again abit later as they walk towards her and she just about jumped out of her skin like wow you can walk lol very funny and awesome moment. they together in the goat house and a very small section area that I found a pallet that would work. lol I be keep a close eye on them.
