We're desperate. Our 7 day old baby suddenly stopped nursing. She wont bottle feed either. She doesn't suckle on finger, bottle nipple or teat. Now she has extreme muscle loss. Her last poop seemed normal. Please help!

Oh no. I am sorry. Try some honey on her pallet. Other more experienced people will have better advice. Maybe something inside is going on. Have you called your vet?

Potentially a treatable White Muscle Disease.
I would personally check kid's temp and give SeleniumE gel, pretty easy to find at store.

Floppy kid, this is what I do.
2 cc's PenG
2 cc's Straight Thiamine or fortified vit b complex
2 cc's baking soda mixed with water, shake well frequently because it may settle to the bottom of the syringe.
Yes, give all orally, at the back corner of the mouth, that is the only way it treats floppy kid, give for 3 days, 1 x a day.
They hate it, will gag and fight you, stop if they cough, wait until they stop, then proceed.
I put each in individual syringes (no needles) and give it one by one.
