Do you have a camera on your phone or anything?
Since baby beardies don't store much fat on the rest of their body, their tummies can look a little disproportionate sometimes. Is he going to the bathroom regularly?

If anything, it sounds to me like your baby isn't eating ENOUGH. Babies should eat as much as they can in a 10 minute period. All 3 of mine will 'drop' their bellies sometimes...like they are all nice and relaxed

Do you have texting? You can text pictures to your email or Photobucket. I don't have phone internet either, so that's what I do. :)
 
yh my little female BD is getting a big belly, i feel around her stomach to make sure theres nothing blocked or not moving in there. if you try just feeling around softly you can feel the food on the left side of there stomachs, just make sure its all moving well and theres nothing blocking you BD and it should be ok but if theres any problems you should proberly go the vets to make sure it don't sound like anythings wrong thou. :D

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
