Puggle

Snorkle still isn't feeding properly but he hasn't lost any weight. He hasn't gained any either, which is a worry but not as much a worry. How do mother echidnas feed their puggles? Do they just keep walking around and ooze milk, or do they curl up at feeding time? Do they lay on their side or backs? What can I do to make him feel natural enough to start drinking.

I wonder if anyone has actually studied this.

Another 5g slurped tonight. Snorkle is still looking a bit thin and wrinkley due to dehydration, but he hasn't dropped any more weight.
