    Okay, so a couple of the pups seem to nurse so hard they shoot milk out their nose. No cleft palette or anything physically wrong with them. I've tried different nipples and different flows for the human bottles. I've basically just been tipping them nose down when this happens and wipe their nose until it seems like they've dried up.

    Any suggestions?

    You're using human baby nipples? See if you can find some for prematures.

    I've tried a variety... I've tried the baby nipples, puppy nipples, and the pritchard teats... I don't think the lamb nipples will work though. hmm... I'll have to look for premie nipples...

    Here's a thought:

    Do you get goat supply catalogs? How about trying the nipples for preemie/pygmy goats?
