New baby hasnt shed yet

So about a month ago my female gave birth to some babies - 3 of which were alive. Within the first week and a half, 2 of the babies shed, and they all fed ( we were waiting for the other one to shed at the time, thinking that he would within a few days.)

The babies have eaten a total of 3 times so far, and that last one still has not shed yet. Has anyone had this happen to them, and what should I do? I've given him a couple of baths, I keep him really humid, and he looks like he will shed any day, but still hasn't at all. His skin feels like it needs to shed, but nothing..

they will be one month old on the 4th- i feel like he should have shed already, he's eating fine, not as adventurous as the other 2 babies, but acting normally.

any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Yup,just be patient
The animal will do what it needs to,when its time to.
As long as it eats and poops then all is well in its world.
