How do you care for babies?
It is very hard to care for babies. You must give them food, warmth, attention and company. You can't take your eye of them or else there will be trouble. You also have to pay a lot of money for a crib, food, clothes, nappies, bottles, dummies, prams and also toys. Babies could never live without toys to amuse them. If you have a job you have to hire a good babysitter. It is good if your partner or the father/mother is there to help but you definitely need help from someone,

If it is just born, you want to make sure that the mare is caring for it, sometimes mares wont "except" their babies. First off make sure it suckles from its mother, the colos…trum milk is extremely important, you will want to apply some iodine to the umbilical cord to help disinfect and dry it up. After the mare and foal have bonded, you can then start to handle it, too much handling before the mare has bonded can change the scent of the foal therefore causing the mare to "reject" the foal. If it is cold season you can put a blanket on it, be sure to turn only the mother and foal out together. It is also a good idea to have a vet check the foal and mother. Hope this helps.
First off; NEVER EVER FEED THEM BREAD. It's the single biggest killer in all wild ducks, feeding them is killing them! Just like when you see the "Please don't feed the be…ars" signs, wild animals should never be fed. That includes WILD ducks. http://www.liveducks.com/bread.html It's bad for any kind of duck, wild or domestic, or the domestic ducks people "release" to the wild. Note the fact that they are DOMESTIC ducks, and can't live in the WILD. WILD ducks can live in the WILD; but DOMESTIC ducks can only live in DOMESTIC settings. They have been bred for centuries to be fatter for human consumption, and shorter wing spans to reduce fly-aways in the domestic farm/backyard setting. Plus, they have 'odd' coloration compared to wild ducks. White is a dead giveaway to a predator. DO NOT take them from the wild. I believe it's illegal in most U.S. states to remove ducks from the wild for any reason, so doing so could get you a huge fine. For duckling help, go to these sites: Go to http://liveducks.com/ and click on the CARE & HEALTH button. http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/livestocksystems/DI1189.html may also help. And as with all animals, a qualified expert (like a veterinarian, wild animal rehaber ect.) can be a wealth of information. If they can't help you, call your local Fish and Game association or something. Honestly you guys need to calm down... anyways you can go to many sites and if its a mallard you have or want to have then if you raise it, not to be attached to you and you get it wander around and live mostly without you, then there is a chance it will be able to survive in the wild....I'm getting 2 mallard ducklings tommarrow(:
They just try to protect it from anything that would eat it. A turkey chick can eat and drink on its own, it just needs to learn what to eat and it learns that by watchi…ng its parents.
Babies need lots of baby food (or milk, in that case), and try to keep them from crying (VERY annoying) by buying them toys frequently and give them lots of "love" that people… are always talking about.
by doing what you suppose to do that the baby need clothes shoes and other stuff
That is impossible. They can communicate and connect, but they cannot take care of each other. Besides,,, taking care is not in the dictionary of babies come on :)
by following them.
Before armadillos can start raising their young, they need to mate in order to produce a litter. Many species partake in some form of courtship ritual before they breed, b…ut these rituals vary between species. For the majority of species, regardless of where they reside, breeding season occurs somewhere between April and June, during which females will mate with one or two males and males will mate with one to three females. The gestation period ranges from 60 days in large hairy armadillos (Chaetophractus villosus) to four months in giant armadillos (Priodontes maximus) and nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus). Some species can pause implantation of the embryo for a period of four months to two years, thus delaying pregnancy. Mating is the only part that males will have in the raising of their young.
No. The female firefly lays its fertilized eggs on the ground or just below the ground and goes its own way. A few weeks later, the eggs hatch. The baby fireflies (called …larvae, looking like little wormy things) fend for themselves eating other larvae and "bugs".
The same way a mother cat does. By making a nest, cleaning, nursing & keeping the babies warm.
They tuck them onto the back of a sheep with lots of wool still on to keep warm and they feed the milk of the sheep
The mothers build nests and nurse their young. Some species live in family groups.
Butterflies lay their eggs on a plant that their larva can eat. Then the butterflies fly away. They never see them after that.
In Blue Whales
they stay with them until about 1 year old and they catch food for them and milk until they are old enough
Cubs are usually reared in hidden areas like bushes and small caves. The cubs lay hidden and don't make any sound when their mother is out hunting. The mother cheetah frequent…ly moves its young ones to ensure that other large predators like lions or hyenas don't pick up the scent of young ones and kill them. In spite of all the effort from the mother, nearly 70% or more cubs get killed in the first year. The cubs stay with their mother for nearly 2 years.
