Default Re: Sick baby, need help

I have almost week old hedgehogs, and I've been trying to keep an eye on them since two died on the second day. We've mostly seen all three together with their mom, but tonight I was concerned because I didn't see one of them. I found it under some bedding, but it was still alive, and jumped a little when we touched it. We unburied it and put it by the mom but it doesn't seem to be moving a lot, and the other two started squeaking, and the mom let them feed, but the third one didn't try, and isn't moving a lot right now. Should I be concerned? Is it just tired and sleeping? The mom is still protecting it. Do babies usually feed at the same time?
