cheers mate thats really good info but it still dosent say what to feed the babies thanks alot for posting tho
think BRO meant check out the websites too ;)
anyhow ~ newly hatched leo's don't tend to eat for the first few days; instead they absorb any remaining eggyolk until they have their first shed, usually you can tell when this has happened as their first stool is pale in colour. I generally start offering small livefood round about day three ~ hatchling hoppers, micro crickets, mini mealworms etc; all food should be the appropriate size ie no more then the length of the leo's head or wider then the width between the leo's eyes.
Feeding times ~ daily; I put mini mealies in shallow dishes such as jamjar lids while crickets, etc are put in loose a few at a time
there's more info that may be of help here ~ Hatchling Leopard Gecko Care

Yeah - that was what I was pointing towards, checking out your site and the relevant section on hatchling care etc.
Was on my phone so didn't fancy typing War and Peace when it was all there already !
