Hi! So it was 3 in total. Mama has lost alot of weight, my dad insists on keeping them outside, I put her inside last night and she got too attached and kept on trying to get inside and ended up dropping little baby from around 10 inches of the ground i think...seems fine. Mamas also got diarrhea and isn't really eating so I'm planning to go to the vet tomorrow and get replacement because I don't think she can have milk without food. Babies look abit tiny not going to lie, they're all about 70-78 grams from what i weighed yesterday wich I believe is under, perhaps a week premature? Queen herself is tiny she was the smallest in the litter so could be that, i mean they're crawling, meowing, nursing and all.How are mom and kittens today? Still only 2? Are they nursing well?
We’d love a picture whenyou get a chance!
Thanks! Do i need to get the teet/nib or just a syringe?You need to get KMR and begin supplementing 3-4 times a day, 3-5mLs per kitten each feeding if they’ll take it, more if they want it. They are underweight for their age.
They need to weigh 8 ounces each (or close) at 14 days, and if your biggest is only 160 grams at 10 days (5.6 ounces), they are all behind. They should weigh 8 ounces at 14 days; 12 ounces at 3 weeks, and 16 ounces at 4 weeks (one pound).
With a mom, they will likely not take a bottle, so use a syringe. Here is a helpful video:

It’s okay for mom to take short breaks, but she may not have enough milk.
Get KMR, get busy every 3 hours, and be very careful they do not aspirate into their lungs.
