I tried EVERYTHING! Anything you could think of a baby carinata might enjoy and nothing worked. I resorted to VERY delicately tube feeding beef heart and critical care formula every 2 weeks via a kitten catheter. Over and done with in 10 seconds tops. After the baby started putting on a wee bit of weight and once I had seen it was pooping and functioning correctly I started assist feeding lizard tails. I'm going to go back to basics and try all the original methods now the baby is older and has the knack for swallowing things. I am shocked the baby hasn't keeled over from the stress of it all. But I am VERY careful and in between feeds the baby is left completely alone for the full two weeks.
