    Maybe someone with more "nursing" experience will chime in but for now, how old is she? Is she the only one acting this way?

    You might try some Polysorbal (spelling) liquid vitamens for her. You can get them at any wal-mart or pharmacy over the counter. They are a pediatric vitamen supliment. She should only get a tiny drop of it at a time. There are other additives I have heard others give but you have to go to the farm supply for them. This is readily available. Hope someone else chimes in with additional advice.[​IMG]
