I think you're probably fine with what you did. Most inks are non toxic in the levels you'd get from a piece of paper.

What brand, kind, etc? Baby products are pretty benign. A Clorox type wipe would obviously be a concern.

Wiping with a wet paper towel would be better.

I can't determine which brand you're using to look at the ingredients.

The alcohol, I would be concerned about. Can you post a photo of the packaging?

But not to be forced feed or forced to do something so maybe that's why?

Hes probably scared of u because u grabbed him the other day. Just dont try to grab him anymore for the next few days. Put some millet in your hand and slowly take it close for him to eat. He will start trusting u again eventually.
