What size enclosure is he in? What are the temperatures? How is it set up?
Baby food is a HUGE no-no . Its terrible for crested geckos.
You want to be feeding crested gecko diet with or without the addition of crickets or roaches etc...
Are you finding any excrement?
I personally would not trust the opinion of a pet store rather I would seek the opinion of other keepers and professionals.
If you pick up the gecko and his skin 'wrinkles' and remains that way, the gecko is dehydrated.
You want the enclosure to dry out between misting, ergo misting every hour and a half is way to much. You can provide a shallow dish of water.
You can dab food on his nose and he should lick it off, but some geckos won't so be sure that he is actually licking it off.
