When I got home from work and checked on the wee one, it was laying in the bottom of the pouch with Lilo (mom). It wasn't attached or even hanging on. Lilo was holding it and cleaning it and it was making little sounds and it was like she was trying to help it.

It's weird because sometimes it just lays there and other times it will be trying to climb up Lilo or Stitch. It will not go back to the nipple. I tried to check it's tummy for milk, but I'm not having any luck. I'm worried. Any advice is very appreciated. I just won't be able to stand losing another joey. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" />

One should be able to hold the baby up to a bright light and see a white spot sort of off centered to the left on the pink tummy. If no white patch...this is a good indication there is no milk.

If empty....start supplementing every two hours for two feedings...then back off and only feed every four. Idea is to supplement and not pull the little one from the mother.

This may have to be done for a week or two till you are confident mom is able to feed baby on her own.

Good luck.

The joey came OOP at 12:30 a.m. on the 25th. It was nursing fine yesterday. I checked on it after work (about an hour ago) and haven't seen it attached to mom's belly once. I'm so nervous...

Thanks Judie. I'll do my best. I just want the best for my glider family. They are watching the little one closely and licking it. It just won't nurse.

Thanks guys. It is just so hard. I'll be okay as long as Lilo and Stitch are okay.
