I would leave her be. If she is comfortable there, that will probably be where she wants to sleep. You could put a small blanket on her but I she should be fine.
When I first got one of my hedgehogs the only place she would sleep was under her wheel. She finally decided her igloo was more comfortable spot, but I couldn't convince her!

I'd just let her be. If she wants to sleep there, there isn't much you can do to change it. Hedgehogs can be very stubborn.
Nancy and nikki like this.

Our Penelope can't make up her mind where she wants to sleep! Sometimes it's in her pigloo all covered up, sometimes behind her wheel, and sometimes she goes liner diving by her wheel and ends up knocking it over backwards! They really are their own masters no matter how hard we might try to convince them otherwise. She wouldn't sleep there comfortably all night if she didn't like it!

Sir Chuffington shunned the igloo for a paper bag. I keep a supply of small brown lunch bags on hand. Only brown lunch bags will do. He doesn't chew them, but they are his favorite bed.
