 NEED SOME MORE HELP PLEASEEEE IM DESPERATE!!

Ok so my last post I really need some answers!!! First off : how do us tell ur sugar gliders are bonded to you?#??! Second : I've had my boys for a little over 2 and a half weeks last night I decided to stay up all night to discover their sleep routine. I found that it seemed quite irregular to me... they finally wake up at about 1 am and then go back to sleep anywhere between 7-8... is this normal... I take them out a lot during the day. Could this be why they only play at night for that short of time??!?! Third : I made them a nesting box and one will go in but the other is absolutely terrified to go in so pikachu won't stay in there long without squirrel.... also please look on my other post/journal entry I have a lot more questions in there that desperately need to be answered!! One more thing how to u add pics to a journal entry?
Thanks in advanced

I think the females bond easier than the males do. The younger you get them the quicker they seem to bond with you. I think holding them daily is important in the bonding process. I got both my girls 8 to 10 weeks out of the pouch. The boys were older. Gizmo was about 6 months and after three months we are finally bonding. Brutus which I got in June is finally starting to bond. He is OOP first week of April. I think the girls bond quicker than the boys hands down but maybe that is also because I got them very young.

yeh I didn't read your other post until after I replied to this. Sounds like your doing all the right things ;) some gliders "bond" quicker than others, my first girl took about 2 weeks, my male took months, still working on my new girls one of them is bonded to me "ok" the other still isn't to sure yet. So yes, it can happen but doesn't always happen that easily just depends on the gliders and their history. Keep doing what you are doing and you can probably start doing some out of cage play time at night with them if you feel YOU and them are ready for that next step...

Leela, as stated in my other post I have 2 pouches, 3 including a hide and go seek one. As well as a bonding pouch. I only put their nesting box in the cage to have more options. As wheel as a coconut hideaway @ Amazon. I am aware of what bonding means my boys just already seem to be "bonded" to me as they now spend all day in my bra. And I was led to believe for new owners who are bonding with their babies that it is better to take them at during the day. I also have just added my own spin off of a glider kitchen!! Which the y love!!😁😁 as well as 1 new no sew bridge and 2 no sew pouches... I am really trying my best with the info and budget I currently have and unfortunately that budget is close to none bc I spent it all on them and their CAGE from bookoo... so please correct me if I'm wrong on any of my info . Thank you, also I apologize if I did not reply the correct way .. I'm not quite sure how to do it the right way.😂😂

2 1/2 weeks is not that long... it takes time to be 'bonded' bonding merely means earning their trust and learning to trust them. It doesn't usually happen over night sometimes it takes months or even years. Try not to put any expectations on them, they will come around to you in their own time on their own terms, especially if they are rehomed gliders sometimes they need a little more time. Gliders are nocturnal and should be sleeping during the day and more active at night. You are likely throwing off their normal sleep routine by trying to get them to play during the day. Mine wake up at different times one at 9:30 one at 10 one at 10:30 and one won't come out at all until the tv and lights go off, no matter what time it is. They go to their sleeping pouch by 7 am for the day. It doesn't sound like they like the nesting box much and some wood is toxic to gliders not to mention impossible to clean might as well remove it and get them some nice glider safe fleece pouches to sleep in that can be washed regularly.
