:When I pull babies to feed off, How many should stay with the mother? I have heard of them getting an infection do to noone taking the milk from the moms.

:Kevin

an infection can occur but it is rare. usually if you take all babies then nothing is wrong. The problems arise when you want to keep a few babies to raise. then to keep an adequate milk flow you must have at least 4-5 babies nursing to avaiod her drying up. :o)
