I Need Degu Playpen Help!?
my degus have nevr had a playpen, 1- i can not pick them up, i tried and failed to tame them, so they are just wild. 2. they chew and climb everything, so they's be able to escape from msot things 3- they do not really seem to need one they have a wheel and seem satisfied with that1. Putting a baby in a playpen equates to caging animals in the zoo? Huh?I think it's like caging the little creatures up. My solution was these gates al over the place so that they could get whole rooms and such. Same thing, just a bigger cage. I would rather them be in a safe confined environment if a need to turn my back for a moment, then them crawling into the poll out back and everyone crying about the accident that did not need to have happened.2. Poll: Does anyone have a Playpen handy?Sure, I have one. Come on over and get it3. Is it OK to leave a 1.5 year old in a playpen alone while the mother goes out in the daytime?Out to the mailbox for thirty seconds, yes. Out to shop, work, or play...no!4. 6 month old will not let me put him in his playpen without screaming his head off?The only way your son is going to stop this , is if you just ignore the fact that he is crying. I know its hard, and it can cause lots of stress and headaches, but this will be the only way that he is going to learn that mommy is not going to pick him up, you've got to have 'your' time...he will be fine!!5. Is it ok to leave 6 month old alone in playpen for a little while?I think that as long as you dont leave the house or leave her in there for hours-that it should be fine. Besides, she needs to get used to you not always being around her. Leaving her and calming down for a few mins is better than hurting her because shes aggravating you. Just make sure there are no toys that she could choke on and dont be gone for more than like 10 mins. She should be fine. Good luck6. How can I get my 2 guinea pigs in the new playpen I just bought them?Even though they do not like being picked up, its ok to pick them up. If you prefer you can get a small box and cut a hole in it. Set the box in the cage and wait for them to walk in. When they do you put your hand over the hole and transport them in the box7. How would you react if your MIL laid your 3 year old in a playpen for a nap?If this was a one time thing I would've said you were overreacting, but since your MIL watches your daughter on a regular basis I think you handled it great. When my daughter was 3 (she's 4 now), we visited my parents in Florida and there was not enough beds, so she slept in a crib for 5 days and got quite the kick out of it. But when we got home she went back to her bed, no problems. But definitely not something I would want to get in the habit of. Good luck!!8. I heard a rumor that Honesty Rules has a playpen?Your picture is hideously scary. Leave Honesty alone!9. My baby is bothering me, can i leave him alone in playpen all afternoon?Babies do not bother its YOU with the problem. Get some help from family. Have family take care of the baby that knows how. You are not fit to be a parent at all!.10. How to get 1yr old used to sleeping in a playpen at daycare?I think you bringing some comfort items at home should help him and he may have difficulties the first week or so but hes young, he will adjust to it11. Is it safe to leave my hedgehog in her playpen all night?Sure, it is perfectly fine. keep in mind, hedgies are nocturnal, and as long as MacyMay has toys to play with, wheel to run in, maybe tubes to explore, she wo not get bored. She might love one of those soft hidy huts and bedding if she does decide to take a nap. Not prone to climb out of pens if the sides are high enough but they push thing around and if she can use her hide for escape, you might consider some form of top. Now it takes a few days for hedgies to settle into a new home, people and surroundings, so have some patience. Keep water and food available for her.
