By now you’ve probably seen these adorable little baby rats, and you’ve also probably asked yourself, “which babies are the best for my toddler?”.
Well, if you asked me that question I’d probably say that the baby rats would have to go!
However, it’s not always that simple.
Baby rats have a unique set of needs that don’t always align with your toddler’s (and even adult) developmental needs.
Let’s look at what baby rats need to thrive in their environment.1.
Baby rat’s dietBaby rats don’t eat as much as we think.
They need a diet that is low in sugar, fat, salt and processed foods, which are often combined with baby food.
This can lead to obesity, and can be detrimental to your baby rat’s health.
However, babies do have a natural hunger, so they need to eat frequently.
For example, they need two-thirds of their daily calories from foods that are high in nutrients like fruit, vegetables and grains.2.
Baby Rat’s temperamentBaby rats need companionship, and the most important companion they need is a mother.
Babies need to feel secure and safe, and they need someone to be their friend and play with.
This may sound counterintuitive, but you can create that bond by nurturing your baby and giving her plenty of exercise.3.
Baby Rats need spaceBaby rats do best in a quiet, enclosed area where they can socialize with their mom.
This means they need a lot of exercise, and their environment needs to be clean.
Baby turtles also need a safe place to live and explore.
If you have your baby rats in a baby house, you’ll want to make sure that their space is clear, and have plenty of space for them to play and explore, which can mean either nesting boxes or a tree or rock wall.4.
Baby’s environmentBaby rats love a lot more than just the food they eat.
They also love having the time of their lives in a safe and stimulating environment, which means lots of socializing and lots of interaction with their babies.
For your baby to thrive, you should have plenty places where they get to meet other babies, play and socialize.5.
Baby can’t be turned offBaby rats will often need lots of time to recover from a feeding, so you’ll need to provide them with the most time they need.
In general, babies need to spend between four and six hours per day, which is too long for a little baby rat.
For a little rat, you may need to make the time longer, but for a large rat, it may not be possible.
For instance, a baby rat can live for three to five months without food, so if you are expecting to be a parent for several more years, then it might be worth extending the time they are getting to spend with their baby.
