When you take on the amazing but daunting task of hand raising orphan puppies you will not be getting much sleep. You will need to feed the puppies every 2 hours for the first 3 weeks of their lives. You will need to burp them and help them elimanate. You will need to clean the puppy with some cotton wool which has been moistened in warm water. This should be done a few times a day. You have to keep everything clean and disinfected. Your washing machine will be on the go all the time. Cleaning the puppy bedding, cloths, bottles etc. In my next post I will go into fine detail on all the points raised here.
