First time owner of a glider with babies, it was kind of an accidental pregnancy, mostly I waited too long to get the male fixed. I did mountains of research uped her protein and added more calcium rich fruits and veggies. I let her do her thing only peeking into their sleep pouch to watch the babies grow and move. I thought I was ready for anything and now I'm kind of floundering.
Anyway, she has two Joeys one nearly oop ( or he already is I'm not sure) and the other
maybe a week or so behind. I keep finding the younger one (still mostly shinyish pink with a back stripe and the beginning of graying) moving around freely in the pouch. I haven't ever see the older sibling away from mom. I believe I saw both babies nursing earlier only to find the baby again just moving around the pouch.
She has interest if the baby cries and he is still plenty warm. I've mostly found him climbing around his father or searching for his mom's pouch. I've checked his hydration and his skin sticks a small amount but doesn't remain tented.
Should I step in or am I being a paranoid new mom? She's had two joeys prior to my owning her one that went off without a hitch and another she unfortunately cannibalized.
