Is there mom acting okay? She should still be taking care of them. But it is okay to bath them with dawn dish detergent and warm water. But i cannot stress enough that you make sure they don't get chilled and make sure they are dry before you leave them. You can also watch them for a minute and make sure they aren't shivering. The heating pad will help also and they can snuggle together for warmth. You can put down a little dish of water for them to try and start sprinkling a little bit of hard food over the soft for them to try at will also. I know it seems like rushing a bit but it is just for them to try before you start replacing the milk with food in a week or so. Hope this helps!!
