Hi. One of my female gliders is currently nursing 2 Joey's. They came OOP yesterday. Both parents are being so attentive and loving to the Joey's. I ordered a rejection kit to be on the safe side. I am currently feeding OHPW & I increased my females protein. What I want to know is what is the best staple/diet for a nursing mother. I want the very best for my gliders and the 2 Joey's. I was told that OHPW is good for her but I wanted to ask here to see what other people had for opinions. Thank you in advance.

Ohpw is fine ...no need to increase only the protein, instead it is recommended to increase the entire diet by one portion so one more portion of staple fruits n veg

This provides all mom's needs while nursing then becomes the joeys portion once mom starts weening the joeys and needing less herself
