How to Feed an Orphan Kitten 00:37

Using a quality O-ring syringe instead of a bottle allows you to control the flow so you don't drown the kitten in formula, which can cause the kitten to avoid the nipple. (Don't use cheap syringes; they stick!) The Miracle Nipple feels more like mom, so the kitten will latch on. This kitten was refusing to latch on or feed willingly when fed with a bottle and standard nipple. The foster mom was very happy at how well she did with the new setup: "Little Moe was 91 grams when i got her at 9 days old and actually lost weight. She started gaining double digits with the Miracle Nipples and syringes and weighed 201 grams yesterday at 20 days old. We are getting there!"

  1. Mini Miracle Nipple Best for Orphan Kittens!!

    Posted by Amy on 23rd Jun 2017

    We have fostered kittens for our local Humane Society for several years. The mini Miracle Nipple is hands down the best nipple we have found for newborn bottle fed kittens. In our experience, kittens latch to this nipple way quicker than other nipples. Additionally, for kittens that have not yet caught on to latching, the skinny nipple shape and preformed hole means less dribbling of formula out of their mouths than with a syringe alone. I am a multiple time Henry's repeat customer. Not only is Henry's delivery quick, accurate, and in perfect condition, as of this writing, Henry's also has the most competitive pricing for Miracle Nipples.

  2. Perfect for baby cottontails

    The mini nipple is great for baby cottontails under 1.5 weeks. The longer is perfect for when they get a little older (1.5 weeks - 3weeks.)

  4. Live up to their name!

    Posted by Emily on 19th Jun 2017

    I do neonatal kitten rescue (16 this year so far) and I also show others how to rescue the tiny guys. The Miracle Nipples are ones I swear by and even hand out to especially fussy kittens until the bottler is able to get their own in the mail. They have literally saved the lives of so many kittens I have worked with because of their ease of use. Not worrying if you cut the hole too small or too large takes some of the stress away from a new and even seasoned bottle feeder.

  5. Best nipple for use on luer lock syringes

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jun 2017

    Have fostered many orphaned newborn small mammals, and this nipple works best. Love that it has the hole in it already. This is a great idea

  6. Mini Miracle Nipples are life-savers for kittens.

    Posted by Barb Shaw on 14th Jun 2017

    This nipple is wonderful...easy for even newborn kittens. It is stiff enough that it can't be chewed apart by older little ones, as the less expensive nipples that are sold commercially with nursing bottles can be. Use on the end of a syringe, or, as a vet discovered on a little island in Mexico with not a lot of resources, it can be squeezed into the top of a small plastic bottle which came with other supplies in it! I thank the "kitten lady" on the web for suggesting it.

  7. Excellent Product

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Jun 2017

    I foster for our local animal shelter.....sometimes the kittens are newborn or only days old....they have trouble grasping a conventional nursing nipple....if I feed them with a dropper or syringe you have to worry about aspiration.....these nipples are truly a miracle....wish I would have found this product four years ago!!! I love the fact that the hole is pre - made; that is another challenge with regular nipples!!!!

  8. Great nipples for bottle babbies

    Posted by Kim Owens on 30th May 2017

    I love these nipples. The kitten that I am bottle feeding took right to it. I love that it already had the hole in it and that I did not have to try and make one.

  9. Perfect

    Posted by Unknown on 12th May 2017

    Perfect for all babies needing to be fed with syringe.

  10. Excellent!

    Posted by Unknown on 8th May 2017

    After years of using other nipples, trying to make the correct size hole, and constantly being worried someone was going to get too much formula, I finally found these nipples. And they're called Miracle nipples for a reason. They work fantastically! Strong, and fit perfectly on the syringe so my little ones can get their formula safely. I will always use these for my rehab critters, and can't recommend them enough!
    They do have a strong scent when the package is opened, and even after soaking in hot soapy water, but none of my animals seem to mind at all.
