How Do I Puncture The Nipple On A Bottle To Feed A Kitten?

I have a kitten that is 10 days old. The mother did not feed her for the first 3 days, I was told it’s because she was having labor which lasted 7-10 days. We had to bottle feed her 1/2 cc at a time with 1 drop of formula mixed in each drop. She would cry when we tried to get the nipple out but yet she wouldn’t suckle on it? How do i puncture the nipple on a bottle to feed my kitten? Her eyes are open and moving around but she can’t really see what we are doing or how best to get the liquid into her tiny mouth.. Please help!
