Default HELP! I think I messed up big time.

Hey guys so basically my hedgehogs been ill so ive been taking lots of naps with her for the past month, i know you should be beware of sleeping with a hedgehog but i have not had problems as i dont move much in my sleep and i put her in her sleeping bag when we nap. well tonight i think i messed up, i woke up and i had rolled over and she was behind me, i took a 4 hour nap, i woke up confused and seemed to forgot she was sleeping with me and looked behind and she was there in the bag, so i was like oh ok, and i took her out of the bag the bag was all damp and she was bright red and damp, i assume was sweat, ithink i might have accidently had my back on her and she overheated due to my body heat and well no air circulation, i put ice pack under her sleeping bag and a cold bath, her stomachs a normal pink now and she seems fine i just am terrified idk what i did, im not sure if i was on top of her i suppose she was under the part of my back that is kinda curved so i managed not to crush her im just so confused and scared and never gonna nap with her again.

If your hedgehog has been sick, I would suggest taking her to a vet. Don't overcorrect for the mistake because hedgehogs can get cold easily, I would also suggest checking her for any injuries as well. I would say don't nap with her again and just give her lots of love at other times of the day.

Default Oh my

If you intend to continue sleeping with her, consider a hedge sized "bassinet" so she's protected from future incidents like this. You especially don't want her to fall off the bed or get stuck somewhere she shouldn't be. I do not recommend anything cold, even if they seem hot, you have to slowly regulate their temp. Too cold and they can die.
