Anonymous

I have never bra trained any of my SG's nor have ever gotten one that was bra trained. I know have 2 joeys that are 8 days OOP as of today that I am hand raising and wanted to know:

Where do you let them sit in the sports bra? I'm not sure if this is appropriate, but in the cleavage area or under the breasts? I can't get them to sit still. Does it matter where they lay?

Thanks!

Nope, it doesn't matter. They will squirm around until they feel comfortable. Ok, so it doesn't matter to them! Under might be uncomfortable for you!

Mine like it right inbetween my breasts but every once in awhile they squirm into my arm pit which is uncomfortable.

Okay, thanks everyone! One lays right under my left breast and the other one stays right inbetween in the cleavage and I just wondered if I would be smothering them. LOL I know, silly question, I just am paranoid that they can't breathe or something. hahaha Thanks, it was very helpful.

Dawn, I'm laughing hysterically at that!!!! That's tooo funny!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> I feel the same. I say to them, I wouldn't do that if I were you . . . but I figure they must like it or they would move, lol.

Too funny, Lexi. I'm glad I'm not the only one... I swear I look like I have a third breast protruding out of my chest and people kind of give me a funny look.

I went to Panera today and started laughing hysterically b/c Hope was squirming around and moving and was tickling the heck out of me!

I can't wait for classes... Classmates are going to wonder why I keep staring down there. LOL

I have a few questions:

I already said USMom is sending me a bra pouch b/c she is awesome!, but I went to work with them and they were ALL over the place. Anything I can do to keep them in the bra???

How long is too long to keep these tiny joeys in there? I worked 8 hours today and I work 6 hours tomorrow.

Thanks so much... I just told everyone today that I had heartburn and that's why I kept grabbing my chest. HAHAHA

I have a pair that like to climb up on the left over my heart (one at a time) and they latch on by wrapping their feet around the strap and then tuck their head underneath It's too cute to see. neither will use a bra pouch - I have learned that I have to wear certain bras though...can have painful consequences and what is with the licking in the armpit???

My babies love to hold on to the straps and sleep. My only trouble is Alex like to bite at a mole I have, I cannot teach him not to do that he love to bite at it..lol <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />

I know they like to hear my heart thump, but they are just all over the place!!!! I had to keep shoving them back in my bra and customers probably thought I was so perverted. I kept telling everyone I had heartburn. LOL My manager thought it was so funny, but that is one of the perks of working at a pet store. hehehehe

Sometimes I talk to them while they're snuggled in my bra. I look down and talk to my breasts. People must think I'm really weird!! LOL I don't know how to get them to stop squirming. Sometimes Suki will go down to my side and sleep there.

Funny story.... I was talking to them and looking at them when my co-worker, Nate walked in and goes, "Are you talking to your breasts and did you really name them Hope and Chance?!" hahahaha... I showed him and then he understood, but thought it was still really funny how I had to readjust every 5 min. hahaha

You guys are a hoot, I have been giggling through this whole thread. Well I have to say I got THE MOST AWESOME GLIDER from Stephanie from PerfectFormGliders. He is from Gus and Gwen. He's the coolest thing! He dives right into my shirt when I have him out, it's darn cute! He licks one spot on my chest until it's almost raw LOL! and if I'm drinking or eating ANYTHING he HAS to come investigate. He's just to goofy! He also LOVES to play, he chases my fingers all over the places and will pounce around. It's alot of fun having a bra baby IF they stay in the bra!! LOL!

Also try the tanks with the built-in-support. My two older guys can sleep in there all day long. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" />

I also buy a sports bra that is a size larger than I usually wear and they fit comfortably. Ocassionally if one of the gliders is intent on grooming me raw, I stick a piece of fleece in there so they don't have quite as much direct access to my skin. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

It might take a while, but usually a glider will find the perfect spot (for them) to sleep in a bra. Mine are in there for about 12 hours a day, only moving around if I get too hot, or if it's break/lunchtime at work. Then one or both have to have a snack, but it's back into sleeping quarters almost as soon as the bell rings.

Tonya, you really don't need a special bra or pouch, they just get used to what ever you provide. I'm a little smaller chested so sports bras work great for me but many people just put them in their regular bra. The glider will go down, find a comfortable place and fall asleep. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cloud9.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

How DO you bra train a sugar glider??????

That's a good question... I just do it b/c I have to b/c the babies need my warmth. I have never done this before. I can tell you that I just stick them in their during the day while they sleep (well, they sleep all day if not eating), and they can get my scent, etc. I stick 2 pieces of fleece in their as blankies....

I'm sure someone else can tell you how... I'm am def. not an expert considering I have my hand down my bra more times than not. LOL

Tina,
You are defintely to be admired for undertaking handraising the two orphaned joey's while working, going to school, taking care of your home. I looked at the pictures of them and they are just precious. I have heard Sugar Babies referred to as "Pocket Pets" - maybe after this they should be referred to as "Bra Pets".

Keep up the good work with them. Looks like you are doing a good job.

Aww, thanks, Becky! It's tough, but if I could just get the entire bra thing to work out, we'd be better. hahaha

Working isn't so bad with these babies since I work at a pet store, but school is another story... I have to study, type papers, etc. and still remember to feed every hour. I've lost half my sleep, but it's still worth it. They are just getting used to me and whenever I get them to latch onto my thumb, they assume the position of tongues sticking out ready for their formula. Cutest things ever! :o)

Teresa, which one do you pick and how? LOL with 27 gliders, I am imagining you grabbing one, shoving that one in your bra, if he or she comes out, going to the next one. hahaha

I bet you would take all of them with you if you could. :o)

Oh yeah! USMom sent me the cutest bra pouch and I LOVE IT! YAY!
