It’s really important that Lily eats. Force feeding isn’t nice but it’s for her own good. Are you able to have a person help you? When I had to force feed Buttercup (stasis), I had my boyfriend hold her in a blanket firmly (bunny burrito style) The blanket was wrapped around her with just her little head poking out. She did try to move her head a bit but wasn’t really able too because of how we’d wrapped her. Then I force fed the recovery mix very slowly. Use your fingers to part her lips a little and put the syringe in at the side where there’s a gap. Make sure you push the syringe depressor very slowly and stop so that she can swallow.
