The problem with that diet is you are missing trace elements and minerals. Despite how balanced you think you are getting the diet it is nothing like what they eat in the wild. If you have three rhac species, why not just feed MRP? You can still supplement with crickets, but you'd be getting a much more complete diet with significantly less preservatives if you are feeding "normal" baby food. No one recommends babyfood mix since CGD/MRP have been widely accepted and proven, it is just asking for trouble. Sorry about your loss, but maybe others will learn from this post.
