...do you give kids? I have a brand new little girl, drank about 8 oz this am. Is that enough or should she get more than that? I would like to save some for kids born later on if possible...

We give the girls more than that - 16-20 if they'll take it. The boys get cut off at 8.

I use a 20 ounce bottle for each kid. I do limit my bucks from drinking the whole thing in the first two nursings, but they get the same amount in 12 hours, the whole 20 ounces. The first couple litters born also get some fresh heat treated colostrum since all their colostrum is frozen going on a year. Vicki
