    No, this is definitely not okay. It is extremely dangerous.

    Go to the pharmacy and ask for a syringe, tell them you are feeding a neonate kitten... just makes it simpler than explaining about a squirrel (and possibly them refusing to provide a syringe).

    Bottle feeding squirrels can result in Aspiration Pneumonia (AP) THE #1 killer of baby squirrels in the care of humans.

    The first solids introduced should be a high quality rodent block. Only after they are eating (actually eating) can you start introducing veggies from the healthy pyramid chart.

    I recommend Henry's Healthy Block (HHB) which is a supplement that they need to eat only 2 or 3 (adults) per day. With other block it is the majority of their diet.

    (I'd stick with the Picky blocks)

    My baby is now 8 weeks, and I have been doing two of the high protein blocks a day, should I order the picky blocks and do one of each kind instead?

    Buy whichever blocks he likes. My guys like ALL of them though hazelnut flavor edges the others out. They all have the vitamins and minerals your squirrel needs.
