    She is not sleeping well because she is still in pain from the C-session, I assume she had a C-session. She should settle down in a few more days. After about the second week, they will sleep longer between feedings, usually the third week they will go three hours between feedings and sometime at night they will go 4 hours. and as they get older the time between feedings will get a little longer. I would feed mama puppy food and all she wants right now because she is feeding pups and needs all the nutrition she can get. Give her some goats milk to drink too, to help give her some calcium, also give her a good dog supplement like NuVet Plus or Hardypet complete. We always feed or moms puppy food when they are pregnant and the whole time she is nursing pups. We also feed ours FROMM 4 star and the pup and mom FROMM Puppy Gold in the pink bag.

    I always like to refer to Dog Food Reviews and Ratings | Dog Food Advisor for the best food to be feeding.

    I have to say....I'm impressed with the way you've handled becoming a grandparent overnight.


    You are such a trooper for taking the advice of the people on this forum and following thru the best you can.


    I can't wait to see what these babies look like as they get older. We definitely need weekly (if not daily) photos of this new crew.

    David has you covered, Cookie may also not want to sleep because while she has milk her only thought in process is to feed her pups. While she is feeding them, I find they get the best sleep.

    I also am so proud of you for stepping up and taking such good care of Cookie and her babies. How are y'all managing with your work schedule and everything else? I'm glad you are going to post pics of them every week because I'm so anxious to see what they will look like. I know it's a lot of work, but isn't it a lot of fun too? @Josebulldog89

    Well i quit my job because i really dint have time to take care of them if i was working i was a sales manager for a fashion distribution and it required me to work 6 days a week, with that said i already had plans of leaving that job because i was not being paid well for all the money i was bringing to the business and also they discriminate against Latino workers which always bother me. I was working with them for 4 years and also found out some workers the same race as the owner which were Asian were getting payed the same as me and they dint even have a year in the company and i had a higher tittle in the company that's why the sales manager tittle for me dint mean anything to me there for that reason.
    Time to look for a new job in about 2 months from now.

    And yes is sure is fun today 2 of the puppies open their eyes it was awesome i will be posting some new pictures by tomorrow for everyone to see.

    Good luck to you on finding another job and congrats on the pups. I was never around when the female I had as a teenager and into my twenties had pups since I travelled a lot for work then but always loved playing with them one the were older. I wanted to keep one of the male pups she had but my mother sold him because some other guy had to have him and paid a premium.
