Default Got my ne hedgie, just a couple of questions:)

Hey guys I finally got my hedgehog!!! I've had him for three days now and he is about 6 weeks old and super friendly. He is eating well and running on his wheel each night, and sleeping A LOT. He seems to be quilling so I got some flax seed oil for his skin but I went a bought the oil instead of the capsules so can anyone tell me how much I should be putting in his food? How much would you say is in one capsule..like 1/4 tps or something? I am also having a really hard time not disturbing him during the day lol cause he's just so cute I want to play with him all the time So I'm just wondering because he does sleep soo much is it okay to wake him up in the evening to play (8:00ish)or should I be waiting for him to get up on his own? And lets say for example right now its 5:00pm would it be selfish of me to scoop him up and put him on my lap to sleep while I play on the computer? or would that just be an unecissary disprution?

it is a GREAT idea to let him sleep on you in a blankie or snuggle sack. He will get used to your scent that way. Just dont force him to stay awake and play. We usually get Dora out a8-9pm for an hour of snuggle time.

and be careful with the flax seed oil, it goes bad really quickly. that is why most of us use the capsules, they stay good longer.
