He died =(

Little baby 1 died. He just wasn't eating enough, he was getting too thin. I gave him some electrylites, but by that point I was having to force feed him the formula. I don't know why he wouldn't eat...but I hope he is in peace now.

I feel bad because the bigger baby is all on her own. Maybe I can find her small stuffed animal to cuddle.

I am sorry for your loss.Poor baby,but things like this happen...sadly.

You should plan on getting her a little female friend.Mice thrive with other mouse companions.They are very social animals and really do better with other mice.

Think I should wait until she is weaned? Would it be better to buy one her age? Because I would not want to take one from it's mother just for this purpose...

Yes,I would probably wait till she is weaned and then try and get a young one around her age,that way they can grow up together.

I completely agree with Vanilla Rat. I would definately get her a little friend around her age when she's a bit older.

Okay. She is about 3 weeks old...so i think I will wait until about 6 weeks, since handfed mice usually wean slower. I wanna keep her on a little formula for a little longer so she is nice and healthy. She should be, since she was with mom the first week of life.
