i don't understand everything in your post, but
1. she smelled food on your hands and wanted a taste of it.
2. some of our gliders bite or rub their teeth on our skin, they are marking us as part of their property. so I have been told.
3. 8 days is a very short time to figure out what is normal for your very young baby.
4. I had scent from a glider of a different colony, I went to another colony and GUS a very sweet and gentle glider sniffed me and had a spaz attack, ran all over my arms and nipped at me. maybe you had dog or cat scent on you.
