my joey is 1 week OOP today.. when i open the pouch he is usually sleeping next to mom n dad.. is it ok to start bra training for short periods when he isnt nursing? how long can i keep him in there at this age? idk how often he eats or if my body heat will be warm enough?
i think he is too young but i wouldnt know since ive never had a joey this young before.. lol!
thanks
nicole

One week OOP is a little too young to start bra training. You would probably keep the little one warm, but not as warm as the parents. Joeys also eat a LOT in the first few weeks, so I would wait until the little one is about 1 month OOP to start bra training. That's usually when I start. thumb

But that's just my personal opinion. Hopefully you'll get some more answers before too long... wink

ok. i was only thinking about 15- 20min/ day.. but i also thought he may be too young/ tiny.. i thought i probably shouldnt try until 3 or 4 weeks OOP mostly because i dont want to smother him.. lol

You can start handling the joey now, as long as it doesn't stress out the parents. Here is a chart that Suz/sugarglidersuz posted with recommended times.

HTH!

I tried looking for the post, but here is a "reference guide" for joeys. So whoever had posted it to me, when I asked, I'm sorry I can't remember, but I know this guide helped me, and I wanted to share.

This was copied from the post, but I'm hand typing it since I can't find it again.

"You can handle the joeys several times throughout the day as long as it does not appear to be stressing the parents out at all. Here's a good timeline reference.

1st week, hold them for 5-10 minutes at a time, within sight of the parents

2nd week, hold them for 10-15 minutes at a time, with about 5 minutes away from the parents

3rd week, hold them for about 15-20 minutes at a time, away from the parents for most of the time.

4th week, hold them for about 20-30 minutes at a time, away from the parents entire time.

5th week, hold them for 30-45 minutes away from parents

6th week, hold them for 45-60 minutes, away from parents

7th week hold them for 60-90 minutes, away from parents

8th week, hold them for 90-120 minutes, away from parents

9th week, if not yet fully weaned, carry them with you most of the day if possible. "
