I received 4 babies in the mail yesterday. Three died in transit. Lone little girl survivor is tired and weak. I've been reading threads on byc since yesterday. I have been giving her Nutri Drench diluted per instructions since last night. She only took two sips at a time throughout last evening. This morning she took 5-7 sips three times in 6 hours. I've tried milky scrambled eggs with her wet food mixed. She does not want to eat. She only drinks. She sleeps alot. Because she is a lone survivor I've put her in a thin scarf around my neck for the night and today she's been under my shirt directly on my skin where it is warm. She does quiet down when she is toasty warm. We just took a two hour nap and I was worried about her sleeping alot without getting enough nutrients. Since she only drinks vitamins, very little at that, will this be too many vitamins for her or should I also give water every other time? Also, do I wake her to feed her even though she wants to sleep and not drink? She does seem stronger but very little and slow progress.
