Default Re: Sick baby, need help

The little one may not be getting enough milk. You can try giving mom some goats milk of puppy esbilac. Often that help with moms milk production. Does the tiny one seem to be nursing when the others are?

I've had a few really tiny ones and they have ended up being fine and surpassing their larger siblings.
