Thanks Connie I'd never heard of Impact. I've always increased food portions and offered booster milk to my mommys. You can be sure I'll talk to Karen about this product and order some esp. as you think it helped with your joey Lemur.

thanks , Connie! What brand of booster milk do you use? Do you alternate between the booster milk and Impact or combine them? Do you re-hydrate either one or use it/them as a top-dressing? -Alicia

Impact is a colostrum replacer. Colostrum is in the first milk produced by "mom" and contains important antibodies that help build the baby's immune system.

I read (wish I could find that article) that marsupials receive colostrum the entire time they nurse, not just the first few days like other animals.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

Sometimes first time moms may not produce enough milk right away or during the entire time she is nursing her first joey(s). I also wouldn't retire her just yet, unless it became an ongoing problem with all future joeys. I am always prepared for the fact this may happen with first time mothers. I also increase all my breeding females fluids, give a little extra food & meallies (I also feed Priscilla's), give gliderade & 50-50 juice water in a ramekin dish or over fruits/veggies, and have Brisky's Milk booster on hand should I need it for my first time moms. I give Brisky's to the moms only in a travel size water bottle/medication squeeze bottle. It can give the dads loose stools if they are drinking it (Brisky's). Wombaroo makes the impact colostrum and joey replacement milk, but it comes in 250g boxes which may be a lot to use before it will expire.

Good to know someone sells smaller pkgs. Intersting info Dancing. I will have to look into glider milk having colostrum the entire time.

I have been supplementing Lily with Wombaroo Milk Replacement Formula. I am hopeful that she will be able to sustain her milk production this time around!

I have to agree with many others... extra servings! My little girls will go crazy when they're pregnant/about to be(before the joeys are even IP). I figure she's not eating for one, but two, or three. I've never had issues with anyone not getting enough milk or with leftover food really, if there's a bit extra the mommy usually goes for it and if the daddy butts in after he's got his share.. well.. one girly even pushed his face outta the bowl. (I'd seen him eat his fill, he's a bit chubby though and always has been.. xD) But they know what they need I think and if offered an extra serving the mommy should get the idea and eat up, usually. x3
Sorry I'm not more help, good luck with your next joeys though, I hope you don't have to do much of anything and all works out well/she gets the hang of it! laugh

Also, love the photo! x3 Toooo cute! <3

Unfortunately, providing extra servings simply doesn't work with Lily. She'll fill up on those things that she enjoys ( like protein! ) and leave everything else ( i.e. fruits and veggies ) for her mate! shakehead That's the reason that I chose to supplement her with the Booster Milk rather than simply providing extra portions of her main diet. With additional portions, she won't consume any more than normal. She'll just eat ALL of the "good" stuff and leave the rest! She's a bit of a stinker! exclamation She's also a new mom. This is only her second joey. I'm hoping that she'll get the hang of motherhood this time around! thumb -Alicia

Well we use the HPW which she drinks up like crazy and then fruits and veggies, but if that's an issue something blended may work too. Making everything one same liquid, or 'ice cream' in the HPW case, I know many people will blend the veggie/fruits in with the HPW and make it one big mixture.. but to each their own! :o Sorry I'm of no help. ):
