Congratulations! I hope they live. Make sure you separate them from the adults unless you want them to become a snack! :P

I have not lost my mind! I just can't find it
5 gallon (Baby Guppies) 25 or more baby guppies
10 gallon (Guppy Galore) 1 male and 2 female guppies

If they are still in the 9 gallon tank with the other fish, feeding them 3-4 times a day will quickly pollute the water, but they need to grow as quickly as possible so they don't remain as food size for the other fish.
Perhaps you can get yourself a hanging breeder net, catch them and put them in it for a week or so till they get a bit bigger, so I'd just feed them a couple of times a day and really crush the flakes up and also get yourself a bigger tank, put your other fish in the big one and keep the babies in the 9 gallon tank, I feel you are getting yourself into a bind. Sorry to be harsh, you sound as though you are very keen and I don't want you to be disappointed when things start to go wrong.
Keep us posted.
