Hello everyone!

I was wondering how many of hours of daylight sleep a hedgie needs? I have a light on 8am-8pm..... but I was wondering how many hours of sleep she needs to be healthy!

I play with her at 7:30 (20 min cuddling/playtime) am and again at 9:30pm (30 min playtime) .... If she sleeps during that period of time and then again some at night, will that be sufficient?

Thanks so much:grin:

Mine slept all day and some times during the night when she was little. I let each of mine play/cuddle for about 45 minutes each( my rescued female had babies Monday so she will not be out for play/cuddle time until the babies are older)

Babies sleep a LOT. They'll usually spend 20-22 hours of the day sleeping, which can worry some new owners. I wouldn't fuss too much, your bonding times are just fine (and could be little longer if you wanted) and shouldn't cause any issues for her. :) If she's tired, she'll sleep on you. As long as she's eating, drinking, and behaving normally otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.
