    A vet can also give you some medicine to give the mom to produce more milk. It is also important that the mom drinks and eats more than normal to produce the milk. Mom's milk is very fatty and she also needs to eat more fat. Some say that zink can help to produce more milk.

    We always let mom free eat when she has pups nursing, so keep plenty of food and water for mom available. Plus I would not ween them until 4 weeks of age. If they are not getting enough milk from mom, you can bottle feed them. They should gain weight everyday.

    Definitely do not start weening them to mush yet. It's too early.

    Ok thanks for all your help...I do let her free eat and we add yogurt to her food every time she needs a re-fill. So her bowl is never empty I did however go by a water bottle for her kennel so she can have water while nursing too. I talked with the vet and he sent some Nutri-cal and said I could give her some with food, has anyone tried that? We were adding vegs, pumpkin,and cottage cheese but that made the puppies constipated so we just for yogurt now and they are regular in poops...

    UPDATE: So we bought goats milk and mix it in her food along with yogurt and a tad bit of nurti-cal that seems to have done the trick no more crying and they are full as a tick and gaining weight. Is there a weight chart I can go by to make sure they are in a good range?

    That's great, sounds like they are getting their fill. No chart that I know of, because each pup is different, just as long as they are gaining weight every day they are doing good.

    No chart because the gene of the dam and sire are dependent on the size of the litter and growth of pups
