It can take quite a while, especially if you just brought her home. What helped me a lot with Felix was holding him in his snuggle bag or wrapped in a fleece blanket so he could hide. I think being less exposed helped him relax quicker. I still do this occasionally when he's being extra grumpy. Have you tried leaving a t-shirt that smells like you in her cage? This can help a hedgehog get used to what you smell like and become more comfortable with you holding them.

Most experts recommend that you feed a mix of 2 or 3 high quality cat foods. There is a really fantastic thread with a list of different recommended foods that you should definitely take a look at. I'll post the link for you below. Mainly you just want to pick foods that you have regular access to (ie. don't pick a food that your pet store frequently runs out of or doesn't always stock). Also, you want to introduce each food slowly and one at a time to make sure that your hedgie isn't having any adverse effects or allergies.

Here's that link: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15
