Sugar's joeys have been oop for 5 days now. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" /> Last night Spandex (dad) slept away from them. I saw both of them come out and eat, so I know she ate. I haven't heard any fighting from them. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Is this normal?

Widget's slept apart from Gidget and Doodad a few times, even going so far as to sleep in the wheel when I didn't have a spare pouch available.

I think they just like to take some time away from the little ones every once in a while. I know Gidget will get out and run in her wheel until Doodie starts crying from time to time.

I don't think it's anything to worry about unless Sugar isn't eating or they're not responding to the joey's cries, as long as it doesn't become a regular sleeping arrangement.

I’m not sure… I have not had joeys yet…but I would hazard to guess that maybe he needed a break…. I know dads help out .. maybe he just needed a night off…as long as the joeys are not being rejected, and everything else seems normal I think things will be fine…

Catcher, my boy gets booted out sometimes. I have yet to figure out why but I always keep a (dog house) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> pouch hanging and mealies ready for those times when Sassy does this to him <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shakehead.gif" alt="" />

As long as someone is sleeping with the babies! If they both sleep in the wheel I'd really worry.

I have some gliders that sleep apart but not always only once or twice a month.

#64720 - 10/26/05 09:24 PM Re: Sleeping separate? [Re: ]

Mine have done the 'leave them alone for a bit' routine, but I just gather the babies and place them back and it seemed to be okay for three to five days, maybe just taking a break and want some time alone away form the baby scene. I'd keep an eye out for just in case though.
Good luck and keep us posted.
