    Question First puppy litter/overwhelmed

    Hi helpful people A little back ground on our situation Kai is our first EB, this is also our first litter of puppies. We love our Kai so very much and are supper excited to be apart of this wonderful mommas adventure with her soon-to-be pups.

    My question: With google giving me 100's of different answer's on what I need to have for these puppies to thrive once they are here, I would love to have a list from other experienced breeders of what is really needed?
    Not asking for any of your secret tips or tricks, but what do I need to insure (as much as possible ) for the littles to be safe once they have come home? The vet has been great at prenatal advice and nutrition, and she is doing fabulous while pregnant, but after the pups are delivered? What arw the must haves to keep the pups safe, healthy and happy?
    What supplies? Puppy crate/play pen? Incubator? Heat lamps? Food? Shots? Suppliments? Im so overwhelmed and I just want to make sure my pups are healthy. I do not want to loose one because of my lack of knowledge :/ TIA!!!!!

    We always put the pups in a play pen with a heat blanket under a towel to keep them warm and kept the mom away except feeding time until they were bigger. I forget how often we fed them since its been 15 years or so since the last litter.

    She is doing great! I found a great woman who has been breeding bullies for almost 20 years and has offered to help me with the first 3 weeks after the pups are born. So between her help and the advice on here, my pups have a great chance =) Thanks!
