getting baby to eat salad

Postby emilys » Thu May 06, 2021 4:13 pm

I have a four month old and he's not the biggest fan of greens. He eats about 50 crickets a day, but barely touches the greens I leave him each morning. He'll eat about 2-3 bites and leave them. When I try to hand feed before feeding him crickets, he refuses. Are there any tips to get him to eat his greens?

Yes order him some BSFL -- www.symtonbsf.com order large they are small--DO NOT DUST THEM -- feed as many as you want they are a great staple feeder ---hand feed him 5-6 then take and add them to his salads in front of him the movement will draw him to the salad bowl - your gonna need a ceramic or glass bowl they cant get out of something like this https://www.amazon.com/MACGOAL-Reptile- ... cx_mr_hp_d
here is a nutrition website ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder

Feed first thing in the morning and the after about a hr or so feed him his staple insect --
Make sure your lighting is up to par ---- NO coils for UVB No heat mats NO heat rocks NO colored bulbs--- you want a bright white solid basking bulb --- and a good UVB fixture No Zillas or Thrive brand -- and a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb for a 40 + gallon tank --
