I had a snake that did not eat for about 6 months or so after I got him. WC male biak. I tried everything. I realize this may be a stretch for a neonate, but you could try rat pinks. At least a piece of one. Mine seemed more inclined to take the rat pinks than adult mice or every fuzzy or pink mice which were probably too small for it anyway. Another thing that I do that now has my biak feeding on anything I put in the cage is heat up the mice ALOT in warm water. Once it is wet and warm, the chondro may start to drink the water off. Mine normally muzzles it per se and then opens his mouth and just grabs it. Well he used to. Now he attacks anything white and fuzzy that I toss in the cage, dead or alive(dead is what I feed of course). Just an idea. Good luck and remember that they sometimes just stop for no apparent reason. Andy
