Question Mommy isn't feeding pups much

My little girl is a new mom. She started out great but now she doesn't want to sleep with the pups and doesn't seem to want to feed them. They are only 23 days old and I just don't know what to do. I have cut the nails and she has plenty of milk. She is a pom. Could it be she is just to hot to sleep with them? She runs to them if they cry and cleans them but just will not stay to long to feed them. Her tits are not hard or red. Does anyone have any idea's?

Are they hungry? Surely they would cry if they were in which case she would run to them.....
Maybe she's naturally cutting down on the amount of milk they have?

I've never had pups so can't really help - but it's always worth giving the vet a ring just to be sure.

Good Luck!

Hi its natural at that age for the mum to stay in with them less and less now.
Im assuming you have started to wean them off of her now??????. She will still stimulate them after a feed.

They don't have any teeth yet. Do I start to offer pup food mush still? Sorry for sounding so dumb. I have not had any pups since I was a little girl.

Yes they need to be in the first stage of weaning off now. They don't need teeth to eat. Something mushy .

weetabix and milk. Scrambled egg and milk. etc

You can make a milk replacement by combining a can of condensed milk, a raw egg and 1 tablespoon of caro syrup. Blend a good puppy kibble in the blender or food processor until it's just crumbs and stir a little into the milk mixture. Gradually decrease the milk and increase the amount of crumbs and eventually the size of the crumbs until they are eating the dry kibbles.

Unless the immune system is compromised for some reason raw eggs are fine. Only serve at room temperature or puppy body temperature. No warmer or colder.
