Just to ease your mind a bit, check the picture in the first post. No one's tossing a duckling in a zip lock bag with no holes or anything like that
The cup is a cool idea, I'm going to remember that if I ever need it.
YES, I had to go back and read it, I was like WHAT NO WAY. WHOLLY molie. LOL. That's a cool Idea and I bet it would worked GREAT with very very sticky babies, I am going to have to experiement with it, because you see when they get sticky, the best thing to do is to get them as clean as possible then you need to increase that humidity around 75-80 to loosen up that gooy stuff and with you zip lock bag idea, you could create TONS of liquids to loosen up the gooy stuff so that it drains out and the little guy can absorb. But until I actually try it, it's going to be interesting to see if it works..
I have used the cup many many times but if they are sticky, it's a challenge because you have to get the gooy stuff out without harming the baby...With the Cup idea, you don't need there heads out, you just need them in an upright position so that pressure is applied to there naval area, the tricky part is they have to make noise. but the basic concept is to help PUSH there yolk up in them without causing harm. You need them to ABSORB fast, the longer they don't the LIKELY they are to get a bacterial infection..
