Don't forget to get iodine on her navel.
Okay, goat kids will nurse for about 3 to 5 seconds continually throughout the day. You may never actually see it. But, you should check mama to see if the plugs are out of her teats. Then, you may have to hold her still to make sure the baby gets a good suck of the colostrum. Though, if she's finding the teat on her own, she's probably got that down!
You can check to make sure the baby is drinking by kind of feeling the flank area. If it's very thin, she's not getting enough. If it's full, she's getting plenty!
