Congratulations on your new baby! I saw your post in another thread. Patience is the biggest thing with new hedgies. They're cautious and need to be allowed to take their time in getting to know your scent and voice. I always put a shirt I've worn in the cage for the first several months so that they can sleep with my scent. Also cuddle every day! Just because she's huffing or hissing doesn't mean she hates you, it just means she doesn't know you yet. Keep at it and she will soon realize that you mean her no harm and start loving on you. It also helps to keep a schedule. Cuddle her around the same time every day so that she gets in the habit. It's definitely worth it once they start to come out of their shell and show off their personalities = ]
