How often do you feed infant kittens?

I found two kittens that are not even a week old, abandoned and starving. We're feeding them every hour just a little, but how often are we supposed to take care of them? We're trying to save them. (They are starting to look better!) :) Also, tips for raising and taking care of them are welcome. :)

That is so sweet! But since they are do little maybe give them a little bit of canned food because they don't have to chew it wen they are a little older but i souldnt feed them cat food just yet and just give them alot of attention and puraid baby food ( just a little bit ) and warm milk cuz it'll be just like there mothers milk n the baby food has all the nutrients they need :) good luck! :)

Infant kittens should be fed about six to eight times a day. Its best to consult with a local vet to find out whether there is a nursing mother available as natural milk is the best. Its important to note that the younger the kitten, the more times you need to feed it. Check out http://www.wikihow.com/Feed-a-Newborn-Kitten.

They make the proper milk at pet stores like pet smart. Feed them every hour or two, even at night. I wouldn't do canned food or anything else. Get the milk they need and not cow milk! Consult a vet.

You should go to the vet and try to find a nursing mother my friend had this problem and she didn't act fast so something bad happened
