Unregistered


So I've had my babies for 2 weeks and am ready to try tent time for the first time (YAY! jump ), but I have a couple questions...

- What should I put on the floor of the tent to help contain the "mess"? A large piece of fleece or would a sheet or blanket be ok?
- I'm assuming I should have water available in there since I'll be doing tent time right after they wake up?
- What's the best way to get them back into their pouch when tent time is over? (a couple tricks would be appreciated in case one or two doesn't work! grin )
- What are some really good tent-type toys? I built a small PVC frame to fit inside the tent but it's looking pretty bare lol!

Any other tips or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!! laugh

Fleece works great! thumb

I doubt they will be interested in the water, but you can give them some water right before you take them to the tent.

You can put some treats into the pouch and bribe them back in the pouch. Or if they will let you scoop them up and put them back in the pouch you can try that. Also keep scented blankies in their pouch, they will usually jump right in as this is what they know as their comfort zone as this stage

- What are some really good tent-type toys? I built a small PVC frame to fit inside the tent but it's looking pretty bare lol!

Hang some toys from the frame, some fleece vines, foraging toys, you can take a wheel into the tent, ball pits, etc.

Any other tips or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!! laugh

Let them come to you, and explore on you. wink
