Marrow's New Home

Marrow, my new little hedgehog friend, just came into my life 4 days ago. He is 2 months old. It seems that he is sleeping the majority of the day. I know that baby hedgehogs sleep a lot of the day (just like a human baby) but I am kind of confused. The first day I had him here, he was running around his cage and being very curious and being super cute. Now, he just seems to want to sleep all day. I was wondering if this is normal? Anyone? I kind of want to put a mealworm outside to get him to come out and play, but I read that you should wait a little bit to introduce treats (after you bring him/her home) to them to make sure they are accepting the diet. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hedgehogs do sleep all day so that is not unusual. Does he get up at night? How much is he eating? If he isn't getting up at night either, what temperature is his environment?
