If they'll eat them, I don't know why not. What kind of baby shrimp are you trying to feed? If it's not some uncommon variety or a species with a larval form that requires special care, you usually don't have to do anything to get the babies fed. They'll happily feed on whatever they come upon in the tank, same as the adults.

Not a good idea, baby shrimp don't eat large things like cyclops. They eat small microorganisms.

Also, if you overfeed frozen foods, it will foul water.

Adult shrimp like frozen meaty foods though... I feed mine brine shrimp, bloodworms and daphnia

I feed my dwarf frogs frozen brine shrimp and bloodworms, so I usually save a squirt every week or so and squirt it into my shrimp tanks just for a treat. Not a regular meal though.
