Default advise please 5 week old eating carefresh

Ok so I have a 5 week old hedgie named Stella. Tonight her mom Bella left the nest out one end and Stella came out the other. Stella went over to the food bowl and ignored it. We have both wet and dry for them but she didnt seem to want any then she turned and appeared to try to eat a bit of carefresh. I picked her up and took it from her mouth and told her that it was no good. Then I took the dry food and crushed some up on a plate and added some water. She ate a bit then I put her back in with Bella and placed the rest of the food in too. Should I promptly remove the carefresh and place fleece in there? Im worried to do so because Stella does not seem fully weined and I know your not supposed to even fully clean without her being weined but im thinking for safety I should remove the carefresh even know that will mean disturbing the nest. What should I do?

Well since no reply for almost 24 hrs I decided that it is in our best interest to look out for both Bella and Stella by completely removing the carefresh. Bella had some stuck to her lady parts and I feared compaction or something of some sort. I gave both Bella and Stella baths and removed the carefresh from the cage replacing it with fleece. Used the old blanket from the old nest to place in the igloo for a familiar scent and placed them into the cage. Was worried that Bella would stress and cause possible harm to Stella but she was all like "meh I just wanna sleep this'll do" looked at Stella and they both walked unto the igloo with what seemed like no cares in the world. Now to just figure out a way to keep them from getting under the fleece liner lol.
