    OK the other 2 are doing OK they are now with the others and look ok. This one is the only one. When he pushes it comes out more then back in as he is relaxing. :#( going to keep him inside the incubator for today see if he makes it. If anyone has any idea what I can do to help him absorb it I am willing to try
    :-( anything

    put antibiotic ointment on it and put it in a coffee cup ASAP
    that way you immobilize it and it cant pull intestines out
    when you take it out, get a picture of its tummy

    good luck!

    ALSO!

    when you open the bator throw some warm wet paper towels in so that way the humidity stays up
