Default How much do they sleep? Have some questions

I brought Yoshi home on friday. It seems all he does is sleep! I myself haven't seen him walking around his cage yet. I know he has moved around because I saw one poop on his wheel and he ate 40 pieces of kibble and there was crumbs in his water bowl so I am assuming he drank from there.

He is 7 weeks old right now. How much do they sleep at that age? Can I start to pick him up now? He is sleeping when I check on him, so I don't know if it's okay to wake him up just so I can hold him? Should I only hold him when he is wandering around his cage? I just gave him a few small bits of apple, and he really liked that. The breeder told me they were handled every day, so I know he is use to human touch. I just don't know how to approach Yoshi the right way

Babies Sleep a lot more then adults, its fine they will also poop a lot more too. You can handle your hedgehog that is not a problem

If you wake your hedgehog up for bonding give him a moment to use the bathroom and such and get out of grump mode from being woke up, then set him near you with a place to hide and let him sleep until he is ready to come out and explore or play
