Eve's website includes the best care sheet that I know of:
www.suncharmers.com

Most people do not brumate during the first winter. I never have. And although I would not advise it, I will point out that wild ones have been doing successfully it for millions of years. In the spring I have seen wild babies come out of brumation that are not much bigger than a hatchling.

And yes, with the unlimited food supply that wild hatchlings do not have, a captive hatchling can grow very quickly. My 10 week old male (part aqua) weighed about 3 grams at hatching and now weighs 18.5 grams

His 5 weeks old sister (from another clutch) was also at about 3 grams when she hatched and now weighs 9.5 grams.
