Good point, Doug. That's why I suggested bigger basters or medicine
Don't attempt 100% perfect separation of babies and peat. Suck some peat
with them, but there will be way less to contend with next time. Trying for
perfection will be unduly frustrating.
PS. I liked Mike's "dump-'em" technique a lot! I may change my ways.

To err is human. To blame someone else is politics.
