Default Mom injured newborn hoglet

Hello!! I’m in desperate need of help! My hedgehog just had a litter of 3. She wounded one of the babies, he has a cut across his chest. I doubt he will make it, but do you know of anything I can put on the wound just in case he does? He’s only a day old 😞

You can’t put anything on it or disturb anything in the cage. Any new smell on a baby will almost guarantee she will kill. Just leave it and mom and the other babies completely alone and hope for the best.
