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. The best nipple

    Posted by DG on 12th Aug 2017

    These nipples saved the smallest baby kittens life. I wish I had them sooner. Will never be without these on hand again. Buy a few, you never know if you are someone you know could use these to save a kitten or other baby animal.

  2. Changed feeding time to 2 minutes from 45!!

    Posted by BonnieK on 7th Aug 2017

    We found a 10 day old orphaned kitten and we tried using a bottle with nipple that we got from our local pet store. It took 45 minutes to feed the little kitten 3ml of milk and we were never sure how much she actually got since we were always trying to see if the bottle was working because it looked like she wasn't getting anything. We have never done this before so I am sure we were doing something wrong! Not big enough hole, etc... However, using the miracle nipple and syringe was a no brainer; even completely inexperienced animal feeders like us were able to feed our kitten easily. We don't even need to depress the syringe most of the time, she sucks and the syringe moves from that. 100% satisfied. Amazing customer service at Henry's too. I called them for advice and they made sure I ordered the right stuff!

  4. Great for infant kittens

    Posted by Pam W. on 31st Jul 2017

    We have lots of infant/bottle baby kittens some into our local shelter. We have found this nipple to be one of the best ways to feed them and they seem to like this nipple better. I get the shorter ones for the kittens.

  5. Amazing for orphaned kittens!!!

    Posted by Cassondra on 19th Jul 2017

    I was feeding a 2-3 week old orphaned kitten with an eye dropper and she would get sufficiently annoyed with me having to go back and forth between her and the formula. I found the Miracle Nipple while searching for bottles online. As soon as filled the syringe she latched on like never before! Plus now she gets to eat at her own pace it only takes a second to switch between syringes! I will never use a different nipple for kittens again!

  6. 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.

  7. Perfect for baby cottontails

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Jun 2017

    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.)

  9. 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.

  10. 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
