I am trying to feed the kittens every two hours, even if they refuse. I am more and more convinced that Dolce is simply not producing enough milk. All of the kittens except Evanee ate more this feeding than they did at 10 p.m. I hate having to shove the nipple into their mouthes, but they seem to get the idea once it's in there. Even so, only Theodore seems to have a strong suck reflex.
It worries me that Dolce will lie down in the correct position for nursing, but will get up the minute I leave the room. I can hear her meowing for me right now. She seems so much like a kitten herself.
