I just got home from work and looked at the pouch where my two babys and their parents are in and noticed one baby was on the top of the pouch! I quick scooped it up and it was cold but still moving and hissing so i put it back in the pouch with the parents they came opp on the 23 and their eyes are still closed i left them alone for about an hour and just now looked into the pouch and he is kinda just hanging on the side above the parents is it normal for them to climb out of the pouch what should i do????

you need to get the baby warmed up before putting him back.

get him in your bra or cupped in your hands. use one of the mom and dads blankets to rub him down before putting him back also helps.

They come up to the top of the pouch when they are looking around for food. He might not be rejected, but also maybe mom doesn't have enough milk for him. He's hungry.

You may need to start suppliment feeding him.

You have a couple options as far as what to feed. You can give puppy formula, brisky booster milk or wambaroo milk replacer. When the joey is a bit older, you can feed baby BML. There is also a recipe on Suz site with a mixture that you can use.

You can also get puppy milk replacer, if you don't have time to order the Wombaroo or the Brisky's. Suz's phone number is on her site - call her! But not after 9!

You only feed Joey BML after they are 6 weeks OOP.

Go to Suz's website, linked above. She gives VERY specific directions, etc. Her phone number is on her web site. Call her if you need to, if it is before 9, like it says on her website!

Actually, for joey emergencies, you can call me 24/7 thumb
I haven't gotten any phone calls during the night or day today, so I'm wondering how it's going with this little one??? I was at work today, so I'm sorry I didn't see this thread sooner frown Is he doing okay? Please do call me if you have questions - I really would like to help out if I can... I know the web page on Hand Raising is a LOT of information to ingest at once. Hopefully you were able to find what you needed though thumb

He did pass away... When we found him on the floor of the cage he was cold so my girlfriend warmed him up while i ran around town to get a couple of things we needed to hand raise him when i got home he was moving around fine. My girlfriend got up to get a blanket to put in the fish tank incubator she looked down at him and he was fine came back upstairs looked back down at him again and he was gone.. the other baby is doing fine with mom and looks healthy. Then last night we went downstairs and the dad was kinda just wondering around the cage.. which is kinda rare for him i wondering if he was looking for him??? I dont know what to make of it

It is very possible that the father was looking for the joey. Since the father's are the main caretakers of the joeys when they are not nursing, he would feel it is his responsibility to determine what happened to the joey frown
I'm so sorry for your loss. Please keep my numbers handy in case you need them for the other joey...

Moving this over to Real Stories now cry
