I searched for this but I may also have an answer. Domestic feline kitten replacement formula is used to help lost baby squirrels survive. Perhaps that may also work for a baby skunk? Cow's milk can give the baby animals diarrhea, in which case they will dehydrated. Posted by autoguy.

Baby skunks wil generaly drink their mothers milk which wood be like a cat or a ferrets since they are so closely related. Once they get weaned off milk they will eat crickets, snakes, birds, eggs, insects, fish if they can get them, and basically anything else they can catch that's edible.
An infant skunk can be fed on puppy milk replacer with a little Grape Juice and vegi oil added. The grape juice is for vitamin C. Never use kitten milk replacer because it will kill the skunk within a week or so. As the skunk kit grows, add moisted dog food. Switch to cooked, diced veggies and chicken (no bones) when the kit is ready.

Why do daddy skunks eat their babies?

This is not a common behavior in male skunks. In fact, if it ever happens, it may be the result of a male skunk with rabies. While skunks can at times be competitive, they are generally solitary and it would be unusual for them to attack or eat each other. Most skunks prefer to eat insects (especially grubs and bees); they will also eat a variety of fruits, seeds, and even small rodents. Male skunks tend to have little contact with their babies: baby skunks (called "kits") are raised by their mother.
