Hi. Here in the UK we have something called 'Lactol' which is puppy/kitten replacement milk. This is great for baby mice and rats too - most big pet shops sell it, or something similar. You could also try EMP (bird food!) which is best mixed with a little warm water.
It might be worth trying to encourage it to 'go' as this is what mum would normally do with her tongue. I don't want this to sound horrible, but if you have other pets, I'd be wary. As your little one is from the wild he/she may have parasites or illnesses, so until you know either way, I'd keep him away from other pets, and be extra scrupulous with hygiene yourself. How are things going now?
Love Han and her 'babies'! x
