Here are a couple of links with baby squirrel info. Maybe they will help with the ';what to do'; and ';what not to do'; stuff.

I recently raised/hand fed orphaned baby mice. I fed them every 2 hours at first then every 3-4 as they got older. I had them for about 5 weeks. They were barely crawling and lightly furred when I found them, also, their eyes opened a day after I found them.

I assume they are like all other animals, needing to eat every few hours. Hope the sites help.

Handle the baby gently, keep him warm but not over warm.

Good luck.How ofter do baby Squirrels need feeding?
sweet. you have all the luck. (they don't but you do) i want to take care of squirrels. where do you live, can i be your girlfriend until they leave? just kidding. well realize this is a once in a lifetime opportunity %26amp; take lots of pictures. also if they told you what to feed them then they should have mentioned how often but i would go with the baby rule of every few hours. babies, even animal babies won't eat if they are not hungry so offer it to them every 2 hours. or google it somehow.
every two hours should do it. you will probably be able to tell when he is hungary. he will be restless, and maybe make little grunting noises.

Good Luck, and thank you for rescueing him, that is so sweet!
Every 3-4 hours would probably be good, but you really should try to get it some special squirrel formula and a bottle. This happened to me before, they are very cute.
