In the Brooder

I have a 2 year old ewe that just had twins today, she has decided the ewe lamb is not hers, the ram lamb she is mothering just fine but the ewe lamb she won't let drink and bunts her away. Any advice on how I could get her to mother up to both?? I have just been holding on to her halter and letting the ewe lamb suck every 3 hrs and as long as I hold her the ewe will stand and let her drink, as soon as I back away she jumps away and bunts the lamb if she tries to drink again? She had no issues last year with a single. Is it possible to get them mothered up or not?
