    My four month olds weigh around the 10 gram size so that is actually quite a low weight. I for one, have always put a little dish of pure calcium in their cages just for that reason, mbd. My understanding is, if they eat too much, it passes through their body what is not required, therefore, not overdosing. Just make sure it is a good reputable calcium and pure, no added D.
    I also make my own babyfood and it comprises of mango, pear, banana and yogurt. I have nice, fat little cresties and I firmly believe that if you give them a good start in life, they remain good eaters later on.

    Default sounds..

    sounds to me like calcium deficiency,definatly boost his calcium intake....put some on your finger and see if he will lick it. also put calcium in baby food....try papaya and mango,they love that stuff. do this every night!!! boost him up,as long as you do it soon it may not be too late. good luck!

    I keep my gecko room around 79-81 degrees. Obviously the warmer they are, the higher their metabolism and appetite.
