Default Keeping My Hedgehog Warm!

Hi, I have gotten my first hedgehog about a week ago and he he seems very happy he sleeps during the day and would eat,run on his wheel, and play with his big tube at night. But the other day his belly was very very cold and I didn't know if that was normal or not..... apparently it's not. So I've been keeping him close to me whenever I can to warm him and and I have a new light in his cage to keep him warm.
So I was just wondering what should I do to keep my hedgehog warm but not so hot to where it could over heat him!
(I need as much advice as I can get! This is my first time ever owning a hedgehog!)

You need to have a heat source for your hedgehog, and a regular lamp won't work. All the info you need can be found here:

Please make sure you keep him warm until you can get a proper heating set up, and keep an eye on him for the next couple weeks as it sounds like he attempted hibernation, which can really compromise their immune system, and he is more likely to attempt it again if he doesn't have a consistent temperature/light source.
