So Fleur had her kid yesterday and things seem to be going swimmingly. My only concern is that she has only one kid and TONS of colostrum. The kid appears to be nursing on one side only while the other side is getting very hard and lumpy, even her teat on that side is getting huge and hard, almost deformed looking. I don't want her to get mastitis (what symptoms should I keep an eye out for with that btw), but I also don't want to keep sending the message to continue with that level of production by milking that side out completely. I have milked out some twice now, once this morning and once at lunch time. This morning, I got about half a quart of colostrum and it just barely softened the side and teat. I didn't milk out nearly as much at lunch time. Am I doing the right thing? I do intend to milk her twice a day for our consumption in about two weeks, but I don't plan on milking consistently until then.
