How to Use the Miracle Brand Products

When it comes to caring for small to medium sized mammals, providing them with proper nutrition is crucial for their health and well-being. That's where the Miracle Nipples and the Miracle Oring Syringe come in. These innovative products from "Miracle nipple" are designed to mimic the natural nursing experience, making it easier for caregivers to feed and nourish their furry friends. In this guide, we will explore how to care for and effectively use the Miracle Nipples and the Miracle Oring Syringe.

Caring for the Miracle Nipples

The Miracle Nipples are made from high-quality materials to ensure durability and longevity. The Miracle Nipples are latex free. To keep them in optimal condition, follow these care instructions:

  1. Before each use, thoroughly clean the Miracle Nipples with warm soapy water.
  2. Rinse the nipples thoroughly to remove any soap residue.
  3. Do not let the nipples soak in the soapy water for too long, doing so will expand the rubber and the nipple will not stay on the syringe as well. The nipple should be well dried before using for your next feeding.
  4. Inspect the nipples for any signs of wear or damage. If you notice any cracks or tears, replace the nipple immediately.
  5. Store the Miracle Nipples in a clean and dry place to prevent contamination.

Using the Miracle Nipples

Using the Miracle Nipples is simple and straightforward. Follow these steps to ensure a successful feeding experience:

  1. Choose the appropriate size Miracle Nipple for your mammal baby. The "Miracle Nipple Mini®" is ideal for very small animals such as mice, newborn squirrels and newborn bunnies, chipmunks, red squirrels and flying squirrels. The Mini is also very desirable for kittens, especially kittens with a flatter face such as the Persion breeds, while the "Original Miracle Nipple®" is also suitable for small animals such as baby squirrels, bunnies, toy breed puppies, opossums,(opossum's primarily lap their formula) and other babies of such size.. 
  2. Attach the Miracle Nipple to a syringe or a feeding bottle. We do include videos on "how to put the Miracle Nipples on bottles".
  3. Fill the syringe or bottle with the desired amount of formula or milk replacement.
  4. Hold the small mammal in a slightly upright comfortable position, ensuring their head is supported.
  5. Gently introduce the Miracle Nipple into the small mammal's mouth, allowing them to latch onto it naturally. When first starting you may need to massage the animals throat so they swallow the formula to get the taste and to start a suckling reaction.
  6. We always recommend that you use the Miracle Oring syringe instead of a bottle initially. Most very small mammals should only be fed with the syringe on the nipple, not a bottle. Keeping in mind that the syringe allows you to control the flow of fluid whereas with a bottle you do not have any control over the flow of fluid. Without control you risk the animal aspirating the formula.
  7. Slowly depress the syringe to release the formula or milk replacement.
  8. Observe the small mammal's feeding response and adjust the flow rate if necessary. In many cases you may need to hold the plunger back in case the baby is suckling to hard and getting the formula to fast.
  9. After each feeding, clean the Miracle Nipple as per the care instructions mentioned above.

Using the Miracle Oring Syringe

The Miracle Oring Syringe is a valuable tool for administering medication or supplements to small mammals or for use in hand feeding with the Miracle Nipple attached. Here's how to use it effectively:

  1. Choose the appropriate size Miracle Oring Syringe for your needs.
  2. We recommend always starting with the smallest size syringe when first starting.
  3. Draw the required amount of medication or supplement into the syringe.
  4. Hold the small mammal in a comfortable slightly upright position, ensuring their head is supported.
  5. Gently introduce the syringe into the small mammal's mouth.
  6. Depress the plunger slowly and steadily to administer the medication or supplement.
  7. Observe the small mammal for any signs of discomfort or adverse reactions.
  8. After use, thoroughly clean the Miracle Oring Syringe with warm soapy water and rinse it well and let it air dry.
