I'm just trying to do some research and be prepared in case something happens with Yuki & her baby. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" /> Just in case! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/read.gif" alt="" />

Are there other ways to ensure a healthy milk supply besides feeding extra mealies?

I've been loading her up on mealies- she's loving it! But if there's more that I could be doing I'd like to know too!

I suppliment my gliders with powdered puppy milk replacer when they have joeys. It really seems to help. A lot of people also use wombaroo, but I think that stuff stinks, lol.

[:"green"]Sarah, I supplement my mothers with Brisky's Booster Milk in addition to extra proteins - it doesn't just have to be mealies, any kind of extra protein is good. PM your address to me and I'll send you a sample of the Booster Milk. (It's good to have on hand in case of rejection, too.)

Awww thanks Suz!! You are the best! I'll send you a PM in a minute.

After I try this stuff out- what size do you recommend I get, or maybe I should say how long does it last?

I see that I can drizzle it over their food or mix it in with water- so I'm assuming it's ok if other gliders get some. LOL Makes me think about the lactating men *HUMAN MEN* I saw on TV <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />

So how do you use the milk?? Mix it and let them drink it or sprinkle it on the bml? Or what? I have a mom with joey just about OOP who rejected her joeys last time because she didn't have enough millk..so I have been giving her extra protein...but I also want to try this!
Thanks so much!

Like all diet talk, you'll get lots of answers on this one. And since none of us are scientists, I don't know how much any one of us knows.
But I too have used the briskys booster milk and the wambaroo milk both in powder forms. I just start dusting the top of their food with it when I know they are pregnant and keep it up for several weeks after the joeys are oop. I don't mix it up, just sprinkle. And I don't have trouble with moms not having enough milk, so I guess it's working As far as the daddies go, they are not getting too fat or growing any extra parts <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />, so I guess it's ok.

How long will it last? A long time, I think the last contaier I had would have had to have been about 8 oz and it lasted for many, many months. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

I sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon over my expecting/nursing females food every night. Depending how much you get, it can last for quite some time...

[:"green"]Since I give my gliders Gliderade almost every night, I mix the Booster Milk powder in with the Gliderade. Last night, I sprinkled the powder on top of their crickets & mealies & they gobbled it up. Sometimes I mix it up with baby apple juice and serve as a separate drink. Be creative - they just love it & it seems to help!

I sprinkle the Wombaroo powder over their veggies because that's their favorite part of the meal & I know that EVERY night, their going to eat all of them even if they don't touch anything else. When Monster started running low on milk, I also started giving her a little tiny bit of the IMPACT colostrum powder (also Wombaroo), that stuff is like 60% protien. It seemed to help with her milk supply, she stopped biting the joeys (of course I was frantic, so I was also giving her other protien sources). I don't know how faithful I'd be to just extra mealies and Wombaroo powder - that worked great for Zoe, we didn't have any problems with her - but we fed extra mealies and Wombaroo powder to Monster & she still ran out of milk - I think it depends on the monkey. Just watch her closely & have everything on hand to adjust for her & to supplement if needed - I'm SO glad I did!
