First, find a different care sheet. If all they are eating is plain baby food they are well on their way to vitamin and mineral deficiencies, none more worse than metabolic bone disease.

There are a few complete diets out there, I would suggest T-Rex's Meal Replacement Powders, MRPs, first. We have always had excellent luck with theirs. A quick internet search will give you tons of options and you could use the little bottles of crested gecko MRP, found in EVERY chain pet store in a pinch or until a general powder is shipped. There are instructions on how to transition the geckos from straight food onto MRP on the bottles/bags themselves.

The behavior of your male is one of high stress perhaps. Is he housed with a female I hope? Is there any size difference? There could be bullying going on. I would be best to separate them at least until you can be sure both are eating and thriving. Good luck.
