Its only been a day but i still got to ask, is it normal for a baby to not poop for a full day. She eats really well has had good temps so not sure why no pooh today? I remember reading that babies poop once to twice a day?
Yeah i came home to a pooh earlier yeah boy! thanks man i knew i was worrying like always :lol:
Why i got you on here what do you do for vitamins, what do you give your babies? I have the zoo med calcium with d3 and without, but i also have a zoo med vitamins but was warned about the vitamin a levels in it. I was told a herpitive ? how often do you do the calciums and what not ? what brands?
the repetitive is the one i dont give her due to the vitamin A and yeah beta carontene is what is in the other stuff i have zoo med. yeah i just picked up the zoo med reptitive, then got warned about it.
Yes we give vitamins in case they arent eating their veggies -- if shes a good veggie salad eater you dont haft to worry about it so much --- lots of dragons dont eat their veggies but will eat the insects so its best to dust them that way you know they are also getting the vitamins as well --- so dust the bugs 2 x per week once per feeding if your feeding more than once per day
she eats her veggies really well especially for a 3 month old from what i hear. dont think ill have a problem when shes older with greens and what not. So because she eats her greens well 2 a week dusting vitas with or without d3? and on the topic of her eating,. you know how the internets full of diffrent awnsers grrr... well 4-5 feedings a day at this age? as many as she will take in 15 min? if this is all correct she will eat like 30-40 in a sitting if i let her and then 4 feedings later thats around 100 bugs ! shes at 105 today and its still early???? am i overfeeding im not believing the internet no more for nothing lol im just gonna ask yall. so whats your advice on the number of feeds and bugs? i give her dubia and bsfl, lately more bsfl, becuase i dont want to overdo it with the uric acids she sure loves them though. and i did 3 wax worms when i got them and havent done more im waiting for new week, to give her a few.
I would feed her salads first -- then do your staple feeder feed as many as she will eat in 10-15 minutes -- then feed again in the afternoon feed as many as she will eat in 10-15 minutes --- w/ her salads and other worms shes gonna get enough - you can also add some small super worms or medium I dont know how big she is - feed like 1-3 in w/ her salads -- w/ all that she should be getting plenty to eat -- the vitamins dont need to have d3 in them but I dont think its gonna hurt her if it does - and yes she will get good nutrients out of the variety of veggies
this week weve been giving her collard greens, kale, red and orange bell peppers dice up, and red cabbage. very little amount of cabbage. thats whats in her salads this last week. so two feeding along with the salads and you said super worms i was under the infuence nothing bigger than the eyes. the supers we bought are small but longer than that gap. but i still have those dont know what to do with them lol. she is about 12 or 13 inches.
