Yes, and they are the only ones out of the flock tame enough to touch/pet etc. When I was in HS we did many ag day demonstrations and we always brought in the bottle babies so the kiddos could touch/see a real lamb. We always did say the lamb had to eat out of a bottle but it had 2 siblings at home who nursed off of mama. And most of the time when we had triplets we supplemented them all some so they both got mama milk and formula, unless there was a runt who was rejected.

So...for the purpose of the show, it was probably the only way to get an itty bitty lamb up close and cuddly. But they should/could have showed some nursing off mama at least.

Not a cartoon, but the other night I was watching Little House on the Prairie and Laura was bottle feeding baby Grace. I am pretty sure Caroline nursed her babies!

I also remember on that show their baby son died. He nursed and didnt gain weight, so they bottle fed him some milk but he still died. I dont know exactly what he died of...

Diarrea from the undigestible milk proteins?

More likely an infection from bottles that were impossible to clean. No such thing as sterilizing rubber nipples back then.

They never mentioned diarrhea at all, very odd. He just didnt seem to thrive and died?

I googled it and IRL he died at age 9 months from an illness.

I use to raise sheep for 4H in grade school and my freshmen year of HS. My last year we bread two of sheep, one had twins the other had three. The one with three had to have assitance with delivery, but we never gave bottles. I never even thought about it until I read this post. And at that age I definitely would have remembered bottle feeding a cute cuddly baby lamb.

Eep! I didn't know I had responses to my snarky remark! I should check in more.

I just walked by one in a Denver Target on Sunday. How is this possible???
I should call them and see if I'm cracking. I must be...

My older boys used them from five to eight, they were the type that you belt in, and they had they're own belt that tightened when you lowered the lap bar.

Ok, I called. What I thought was a lap belt booster as I walked by was just a backless booster. My deepest apologies for my ignorance, and snark. I would like to offer a nice round of cyber chocolates on me. My hormones are much better now anyway.

Hey, Bear In The Big Blue House is Pro-breastfeeding and promoted it on his show.

They were babysitting one day and Bear pulls out a bottle for the baby and said something along the lines of "most babies drink milk from their mommies, but if their mommy isn't around, they drink from a bottle"..

Unfortunately the show that could have gone the right place was Zabomafoo. It was the episode about what makes mammals mammals. The showed a biziilion different kind of animals nursing then at the end whip out the bottle to feed a baby.

FCC would probably fine them if they didn't.

I hate Caillou. That little brat would be enough to turn me pro-spanking.

I've been researching goats for a couple of years off and on... (someday, someday) and remembering reading the pros and cons and thinking, "Wow I can say I'm pro-bottlefeeding for kids." The bottle-fed goats are much more tame, and since you're milking the goats, it's not like they're going to get formula. Since I want the small Nigerian Dwarf goats I would like to find the time to bottle-feed since you can sell the wethers as pets, I wouldn't care so much if they were just going to be butchered for meat. As a kid, I played with my baby goat like it was a dog and it wasn't bottle-fed so not so worried about them not being gentle enough for the children.

(Of course if they're going to be for meat, it's probably better the kids play with him less anyway so they're less attached... "You see boys, there's a reason we named the goat Stewy..." )

There are 4 boys that live down the street and they were all here the other day and the little one (4 years old) was sitting at the table coloring.

And he says in his cute, thick accent (his father only speaks spanish) little voice "M'dad is gunna kill m'goat"

It was so cute and sad at the same time
