I have a 4-week old foster that I picked up from the shelter this morning. They told me he had some trouble latching at times but said it should be okay. Well.. I got him to latch once or twice, but other than that I haven't had much luck. I've been syringe feeding him but I'm struggling to feed the proper amount because after a while he starts spitting it out. He's lost some weight (a few grams) as well. He seems to be acting fine otherwise; very active, walking around, peeing and pooping normally. Should I be concerned?? Is it possible that he's just nervous about being in a new environment and will start eating more once he gets comfortable here? This is my first bottle baby, so any and all advice would be appreciated!
