I'd say there are several problems here. One the cage is much too large for a baby. A small shoebox sized or slightly larger rubbermaid tub is better. Humidity for babies should stay at a constant 80%. They dehydrate rapidly if not. Make sure the pinky offered is very hot....I mean hot! I typically take the pinky and last minute dip it in almost boiling hot water for just a 1/2 second before offering. I feed after dark. Are you certain this baby isn't a farmed import? If there's a chance, you may have a parasite overload problem. Getting a fecal if you can might point to parasites. You might consider worming with panacur as a possible preventative. Smaller cage, more security, hotter food and more security....higher humidity...more security. Did I mention babies need to feel secure? Also, the perches should be no wider than the widest portion of their bodies, so make sure they aren't too big or small. Temps should be about 85 on the warm side, in the mid to upper 70's on the cool.
