Default Nourishing a runt

I have a little syrian runt on my hands. He's 3 weeks old and the others in his litter are noticeably bigger than him.
He eats well drinks well. Has issues with nursing because of competition with his bigger siblings. His name is Satchius or "Satchi" and he's a lh golden dominant spot born on 6/6.

I don't know if this is a wise thing to do, but is it possible you could separate the rest of the litter from him so he can have more time to be nursed by his mother? Then he wouldn't have competition with nursing. That's the only possible solution I can really think of. I'm not experienced in looking after really young hamsters though, so I don't really know. I would probably seek advice from a professional.

I hope you can find a way to solve this. By the way, the name Satchius is really cute ^_^
