jay is right most irn bubs do need a bit offorce feeding
however ive had several bubs that never took to the syringe but took to the hand rearing spoon like ducks to water if you cant buy one try bending a teaspoon it works just as well

how old is this baby, have you asked the breeder? I don't like to sell unweaned babies, its too risky, i wait it out, even if it takes alittle longer than usual, don't heat up the formula over 110F it will give your baby crop burn, mix it to look like catchup, sometimes when its too cold they refuse to eat it also Hope this helps
