We originally found 4 baby mice as we were working on our camper. Sadly, we scared the mom off. She did not come back for her babies after almost 24 hours. I did not realize that we shouldn't have waited so long until we went back to check on them and I started to do my research. 1 of the babies was a peanut and passed away early this morning. The other three are eating, pooing and peeing, but they don't look to be growing. They look smaller and less plump than when I first saw them. We are feeding puppy milk replacer every 2-3 hours, adding in some pedialyte a few times a days. There fur seems to be on the dry side. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

Aww Thank you for trying to help them. Have you seen the sticky on wild mouse care? There’s a lot of great info there on feeding, care, and even release.
