The damís behavior after the birth
Mothers react differently. Some do not like to nurse until they have passed the afterbirth. Others are attentive immediately. Some first time moms are nervous when the cria pokes around looking for the udder. Some moms will spit at you when you approach the cria, others are proud to have you inspect their baby. Be patient, alpacas are exceptionally good mothers and almost always take loving care of their cria. A few mothers reject their cria or try to kick them off when they nurse. You should check the mother to see if her bag is engorged or if the teats are engorged. If she is engorged she may be in pain and you will need to milk her out. If she rejects the cria it may be that she has lost scent identification. If you still have the placenta, rub that on her.
