How often should I handle my 2-3 week old bearded dragon?

Hello,
I have just got a baby bearded dragon a couple of days ago and I am unsure on how much I should hold him/her.
P.S this is my first bearded. Please help

Thanks,

When they are that small I would probably limit handling unless they seem really OK with it and not afraid or defensive. For a while it may be best to just interact by sitting by the enclosure frequently and maybe do some hand feeding of treats like black soldier fly larvae to help build a bond.
