Spoon feeding is a must to teach these teeny tiny
Innova Puppy Kibble blended with Merricks Puppy
Plate Canned food, Baby Rice Cereal and their Milk formula...
Great feed from the start for these spoiled kids....
Not so clean no more... Puppy gruel goes everywhere.....
loads of laundry with these babies....
All Done and ready to be warmed up.... (for those
that don't know puppies this young shiver after they eat so they must be
"Please mom let us in our box"...
After a quick baby wipe bath, the babies are now
warming up on their microwaved rice socks and snuggle pads...
The babies have graduated to momma's nursing box
in our bathroom... Draft free zone for sure lol....

This is my "homemade feeder" ... which consists
of a towel and trustworthy duct-tape lol... Hey it's not fool proof, but
it helps sooth the babies while I hold one... I sometimes do 2 at a time
with a bottle in each hand and put 2 on the feeder. I just placed all 4
like this for the photo, if it was only this easy... they let go, the bottles
move, but hey it helps cause as soon as the babies smell me they go nuts,
so I had to invent something to soothe them while I hold one... so far
so good :)

After a meal.... nice and full bellies...
Mom and her Newborns at home
next afternoon 12/31/09:
This was about 16 hours after the babies were
born and mom was quite tired here... It had been a long previous night
and long day for her... Labor, Surgery, long car rides, new puppies...
Too bad her milk did not come down for over a week, she is a wonderful
and loving mother.....
