Hello, it is 1:25am and I'm up spending some Bondingb Time with Stuart. Thought I might just pop in and see how everyone was doing with their little ones and bonding Progress? Since his Tent Time started three days ago we have made lots of progress. If I am only able to do Tent Time 3-4 times per week is that enough?

Thanks sugiemom to Stuart :grey:

There is no definitive answer to is 3-4 times a week for tent time enough. I would say any tent time is better than none, but obviously the more you can do the better. I don't think that you need to worry though, do what you can, when you can and that bond will form. Just keep up the good work.

sugiemom,

Like Philwojo said, I think anything is enough as long as you're making progress. If you've been following my comments, I've had to work crazy long hours for going on a month now, yet spending even a little time with my fuzzies on nights they weren't upset with me has led to quite some progress. They are definitely more bonded now that when this insanity started.

If you are able to dedicate time to him three to four times each week, show some patience during each session to let him determine how it goes, and follow through with handling any way he'll accept, I'll sure you'll see some remarkable attachments form.

Hang in there and enjoy the ride!

Thank you both for your answers. Being that at this point he is alone I just want to make sure he gets plenty of interaction. I don't want him to be too lonely or stressed

My first glider was an only for a very long time. The one thing you need to be careful about is giving Stuart enough alone time to get adequate sleep. They are nocturnal so given the chance, most will sleep all day undisturbed which is what you want them to do.

Even in my families (later), I doubt a tornado would wake them, but they woke earlier than most who post (around 8:30-9:30 PM consistently).

There were times years ago, I would travel with one in particular to glider gatherings, and she did not appreciate being carried around during the day shakehead When we got home, it was like she needed to catch up on missed sleep rofl

Stuart may be completely different. Just wanted to tell you what I have experienced.

He gets most of the day to sleep yes. I do carry him about three hrs a day but it is USUALLY my down time where I am sitting and relaxed. He seems to enjoy it.He sleeps wakes up for an occasional apple bite. lol
