Whole cow milk would be from the grocery store unless you have a source for cow milk. The milk replacer you buy in a bag and mix with water. There are only a few milk replacers that are good. Most are junk and have actually killed kids. I always buy whole milk so not sure which are the good milk replacers.

Yeah i use the whole milk too, i tried milk replacer once when it was my first bottle babies but they would have runny poop so i changed to whole milk and have used it ever since and they do great on it. :) i know someone who puts raw eggs in their bottles and their kids get huge. :)

I don't know at what age people sell Nigerian dwarf bottle babies but how often do you have to feed them?

The reason I am asking is because last year I was supposed to get a bottle baby and the lady ended up giving her to someone else and then they later sold her to me so I never got the chance to bottle feed and I had her cage set up and everything ready so I was disappointed and I really want to raise a Nigerian kid! I just want to make sure I have the time to feed them however often they need it

So if I leave at 6:45 in the morning and get home at 2:30 would I be able to feed it correctly? Other family members would be home while I'm gone but not every day of the week.

If you fed the first bottle before work, then if someone could feed a bottle while you are gone, you could feed the rest.
