 Help with joey

My pair had 2 babies. They were doing great or so i thought. I had to bring them from my lanai to inside due to cold weather. They were still okay however i cgecked on them yesterday and one of my babies had been mostly eaten. Yhe other had a nip. I took her our. Made sure she was warm. Fed ger with a dropper. She is very very spunky. I put her back with mom and dad but didnt sleep much and kept checking them. Mom let her nurse. This morning she was alone so i fed her etc. She is still spunky. Dad was acting very odd so i let him go back to his large cage since its waem again and baby is snuggled mostly in moms pouch and she is holding her tight and nursing her. I am hand feeding mom while she is with baby. Should i let the male back in with them? I am nervous. My baby is about 3-4 weeks out of pouch. The last set died before the eyes opened.

Please help.

BE CAREFUL!!! You have to figure out who is eating the babies. It it is the mom or dad take them out of the cage for a while. The smartest thing is once you figure out who is eating, take that one to the vet with the baby. It might even be the baby. In that case take the baby to the vet!

I have no experience with babies, but have heard dads are important for caring for the babies. also that the first birth can end up with mom eating babies. But this sounds like second set. good luck
