I'm not sure about syringe size but cc is metric. cubic centimeters.
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

cc's and ml's are one in the same.

As to how much to feed a three week oop. is usually dependent on the baby's size. For now...try .80 ml(.80 cc.) to 1.0 ml(1.0 cc) and then see how he does.

Is he by chance still in with his parents?

no unfortunatly the dad attacked the mom yesterday and killed her, we don't know why..they always got i have removed the baby and am looking after him myself now. I did leave the baby with dad for a while but dad pushed him out of the pouch yestreday and left him crying on the cage floor for about 2 hours so i pretty much considered him abandoned and he will just hang with us i guess. I am afraid dad will kill strange

When I was hand feedind YoE, I would just feed him until he stopped taking food. Then I would clean him off and stimulate him to go potty. Then I would tuck him in my bra for a nap until he started squirming around, which usually ment he was hungry or had to go potty, or 2 hours had passed...
