I usually do about 15 min. at a time, about 2-3 times per day at that age. I do not want to take away from feeding times.

It depends on what you've worked up to. If you haven't been handling the joey away from her mom at all, then probably about 5-10 minutes. If you've been handling her over the weeks, then you may have worked up to 45 mintutes to even a couple of hours. Start from where you are now and work up the time she is away from mom. If the joey starts nuzzling your hand looking for food, then it's time for her to go back. thumb

You can start putting her in your bra anytime. If there is room, just so that mommy doesn't get stressed out you could put her in there too with her baby.
