Question Food for baby BRB

My BRB is about two months old and I am going to get her some f/t fuzzy mice but I'm not sure if I should get large or small. I would appreciate any input I can get. Thank you

Try to feed a prey item that leaves a small bulge after being eaten or one that's roughly 1-1.5x the girth of your snake's widest point.

If you find that your snake grows faster than you can use up the appropriately-sized F/T mice, then you can also feed multiple prey items at one feeding.

Re: Food for baby BRB

At 2 months old, small fuzzies are likely going to be more appropriate, but you should be able to upgrade in a few months. I didn't upgrade mine to hoppers (2 sizes above peach/small fuzzies) until he was 6-8 months (I can look up exactly when) at 80 grams. He came to me at 2 months and 40 grams eating small 4-5 gram fuzzies.

I also keep my meals smaller than most, at roughly the girth or slightly smaller, so that it doesn't leave a noticeable bulge.
