Noisy Eaters, Quiet Sleepers

07 May

cuddle buddies

It turns out Pernicious especially had been sucking his food; as I started adding less liquid, he started getting less good at eating.  I expect a little weight loss or lack of gain around eating, but a week after weaning, he was headed down more.  So I discovered his little problem and started prying open his mouth to insert food.  He was desperately eager and gained back all his weight that day.  He sometimes does a little better on opening his mouth to eat, but the intensity of the experience works against him.  I’m back to adding more water and monitoring their consumption a little more.  The photo above is him cuddling with Perfecto.

The video below is their eating in action, with full audio.  They changed places a lot before I started the camera, and did so again towards the end of the clip.
