    She is having a hard time standing and has been walking backwards. I have her in a smaller box on paper towel in the incubator and have been giving her water with electrolytes. I don't know what to do with her. She was born on Sunday at 6pm and it is Monday at 10 pm and it is not going down or drying up. Is this something I need to tie with dental floss and remove? Any help or suggestions would be super appreciated. Thank you, Dawn
