    I can't help with the schedules and temp. etc. I would think
    there is a lot of that kind of info on the web though. What I
    did want to mention is, that's not a good idea unless the baby
    is orphaned or something else forces your decision. They
    should all be feed for a while by the parents for their own
    protectio. Even if you want to supplement the feedings, they
    need the protection of the immunities they will get from their
    parents. You can't replace that part of the process.
