I think everything Mike said is spot on. One idea for feeding little ones is this: I take mine out and feed in a small deli container or glad ware. This makes it easy for the snake to find the food. Also don't put any aspen in, so you don't have to worry about it swallowing anything but the pinky.

As they get larger, I don't worry about them swallowing a little substrate. I also tend to feed in the cage as they get larger.

If one of my adult corn snakes acts interested in my hand when I reach into the cage, I present the open palm of my hand. I have never had one strike at that.

Here is another way to feed babies, but it doesn't work for them all. Some will eat in or from your hand, others need their privacy.
