Are you sure she's eating it? She may just be putting in her cheek pouches to bring it to her nest! Hope this helps!

Hi,

      What bedding is it? Make sure it is not cotton/fluff. Make sure IT IS a paper/digestable bedding. If it is soluble in water, so your little one can safely digest it. As Justice said, it might not be eating it.

      I would advise eithe J-Cloth, toilet/kitchen roll or a tissue bedding from a pet shop.

No, that would be nasty. Thats what happened with my first ever Robo. The pet shop advised a fluffy bedding, but they were wrong.I was to late to save her. :(

I work in a petshop too! But dont worry we dont sell "fluffy stuff" we are trained. Your hamster is not eating the bedding shes bringing to her nest to keep the babys warm. Dont worry.
