Weight Gain

1 Sep

On August 25th:

And on the 30th:

That is 35 grams.  35-27 = 8 grams.

Almost a 30% weight gain in five days.  That comes after a concerns over his inability to self regulate his temperature and dehydration.  I think he is through the growth check now, though.

He is chewing on solids–nuts, fruit and the nice gooshy micro-nutrient rich contents of a small moth pupa case Sue found for him.  Which he loved.  I contributed three glass pipets (.5, 1, and 2ml) which are making feeding him his liquid easier.

Sue reports he is quite active at night now.  She is exhausted from getting up to feed him at 2AM.
