If the trap is open, the plant is open for business, and it can feed/you can feed it. The issue you'll find with feeding one that small is that it can be very easily be given too big of a meal, and it'll rot before being digested. Just let it catch its own food.
In my experience, just keep them outside, keep them moist, and they'll take care of themselves in regards to food. In the height of the season, my flytraps will be 80+% closed/digesting meals, even the little ones.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
