When it says to never let them push their head against you or demand attention...

Does that include the lips-first nudging of a hungry bottle lamb?

I include it, yes.  

This one wants to be a human.  Humans get to eat after all the other animals are fed and chores are done.  If she wants to eat early, she can be a sheep.  I think she understands this and has chosen to be a human for now.  But lately, she's starting to waiver and is thinking about the advantages of being a sheep.
