Linda,

I have three babies who are 4 months old and been sleeping for a month now, every three days I poke them to be sure their alive. About every two to three weeks I soak them for about an hour then put them back to bed, earth dirt and sphagnum moss. Since their only 4 months old
I don’t want to hibernate them, this seemed to work for last year’s clutch and will do so with this group. Not saying it’s the right or wrong way, only it works for me. My wife does take a vitamin E capsule liquid and rubs their shell to keep from getting to dry. They have not eaten since the last week of August but they look great, believe me I’m looking forward to when they start eating. Last years clutch didn’t eat for four months and their doing fine.
I’m sure other members have their methods for newborns.

Alan
