Default Re: Healthy growth rate

Growing babies will typically gain 10-30g or more per week. It starts to slow down around 12 weeks old (or later, depending on the hedgehog), at which point they'll still gain but not as quickly. Sometimes they'll plateau for a week or two, and also they can have large growth spurts sometimes.
