How Often Do You Feed Newborn Kittens?

Wondering how often do you feed newborn kittens? If you have found yourself in the unique position of having to care for a newborn kitten, you probably have many questions on how to proceed. A brand new baby kitten is helpless, by cat standards, and will need your round the clock care. A newborn kitten needs to be fed a commercial kitten formula every 2 hours until four weeks of age.

This can be fed using a special bottle created just for feeding kittens and other small mammals, or using a syringe. Your veterinarian can help you learn the best way to feed your kitten, ensuring the kitten receives enough food to grow and thrive.

If you’re caring for a newborn orphan kitten, syringe feeding might be a good option–but you want to make sure you’re doing so carefully. Here’s how to safely feed a kitten via syringe.
