Allow her to feed & be handfeed until sshe choose she is done. Please read up more on fully fledging -- or contact the breeder you got him from. This is one reason that I dont support the sale of non weaned birds. I will say a little prayer for you, but goole please and read all you can about weaning a cockatoo

you dont stop until the baby starts to refuse feeding.
And even then you continue to offer "comfort feedings" whether she takes them or not for possibly a year. As I mentioned in a previous thread you started, you picked a very difficult species to look after and especially a baby. I posted these links there too but you must not have read them. Please do.

Wishing you the best with your baby. You're in for some feeding for quite awhile yet. Your baby will know when he needs it no more.
The link from Jlcribber about Weaning Sadie is a great read. Read it, I think it'll help you to understand your baby.

Thank you to all so much for me and Baby Dillon as soon as I figure out how to put pictures in I will, I love the feeding him part it is a special bonding time, and I see where all this makes much of a big difference.

I'm also thrilled you've taken some of the members advice here. I also really liked that 'weaning Sadie' article. I so wish some kind soul had pointed it out to me 16 years ago when I got my little Too. I also had a loving breeder, but as so many have done, she advised me not to 'spoil' Sweden. So, I also 'pushed' her to wean. If only I knew then what I know now. Her crying did get her more feedings, and longer than I was advised to do them, but she still didn't get what a little Too baby needs.
You're off to a great start! Come back often with all your Too baby stories. I miss those baby Too days.
