First, I would stop all feeding immediately for atleast 8-10 days. I am not sure the size of your neonates but offer them a small meal. The way your post reads is that you have been buying live fuzzies at the pet shop and I am assuming you are feeding them live(whole). If this is the case, your meals are probably too large. Their next meals should be very small, day-old pinks but definitely wait until you offer anything. If you feed too soon, they will regurge again. Three regurges in a row and many times your snake is guaranteed to catch the "syndrome" and eventually expire. Good luck

:Hey all, my female atb had her babies on 8/28/02 they ate very little after there first shed, (it was mostly fuzzys cut in slivers for them, since they dont like pinks) and after that they all stoped, so i had to start force feeding them with a pinkey press, i did this till about 4 weeks ago when i ran out of pinks (got a big order of them coming on tuesday) so i have been buying live fuzzys at the pet shop, all most all of them ate but 3 days later they all regurtated it all (VERY nasty mess) and i hade to move all the babies to new clean cages, and the any food they eat (pinks as well) they are not holding it down, what should i do? i need to get them eating before december 7th!! (im selling them at the ky reptile show)
:well thanks for any help!!!
