They're adorable!! So excited for you.
We're feeding BML right now too. I've never used the "frosting" method - it should be apple sauce not apple juice - but I think it's intended as an occasional treat or to get suggies interested in the diet
, not as a nightly thing. I do make my BML mix with apple juice, some of the other "modified leadbeaters" diets
do not use apple juice.
My BML is about the texture of apple sauce or yogurt when thawed and the texture of ice cream when frozen. You may want to check your measurements because if your texture is abnormally thin, it's possible you made a mistake somewhere. Sugar glider diets
are precisely calculated for suggie nutritional requirements so any adjustment in the diet
can throw things off and cause problems in the long term.
As a last point, BML has a strict list of appropriate fruits and vegetables that are intended to accompany the diet
. If this list isn't followed, you're not really following the BML diet
and the balance - especially the calcium:phosphorous ratio - can be thrown off, which can lead to serious issues like metabolic bone disease. It's okay to feed other fruits and veggies as occasional treats, but make sure you are sticking to this list most nights.
I buy my fruits and veggies frozen and thaw them nightly with the BML nectar as gliders don't eat enough produce to make it practical to store fresh produce in the fridge.
