Smile expecting albino hoglets

This is her first liter, and my first time experiencing hoglets. She looks like she is going to have them any day. I've been leaving her alone. Changing her food and water quietly daily. Now i guess it's time to be patient. Any advice?

Just take a peek when she's asleep to check if she gave birth already. Try changing her food and water when she's asleep. Make sure her bedding is clean before she gives birth.

I'm also expecting albino hoglets yet again this month

Be careful about peeking in on first time mothers. It depends on your nest box, If it has an easy to remove lid, and she's very mellow maybe go for it. If she's at all a nervous hedgehog, or if you have to move the body of the nesting place to peek, don't. I've even had some moms get huffy when I stand near the cage, either they can see my shadow there, or smell me, or hear me breathing. Second round moms are better, they know what to do and you know how they react to babies and you around their babies. Patience. Wait for the squeaks, wait for her not eat for a day, Wait for her to move all her nesting material into the box. All are signs the babies are here, but they might not happen, good moms keep their babies fed and have less squeaking.
