This isn't for me, but for my friend. She has two girls and she'll be introducing two more girls to them. Her current girls are around 8 weeks and her new girls will be anywhere from 3-5-ish weeks (the breeder is letting them go young, sadly :( ).

I'm not sure if introducing babies to babies is different than adults to babies or babies to adults. I also don't know where the "cutoff point" is for females where babies have to be 12 weeks old to be introduced to them.

What do you guys think?

If she intros soon it should be nothing. If she waits her girls will hit puberty and start being finicky. I would try them in a bathtub or somewhere neutral.

What's the approx. age for girlies hitting puberty, Nanashi, if you don't mind me asking? For some reason I was thinking around 12 weeks or so, is that right?

But before then, will babies generally be accepting of one another? I know people often have problems with babies to adults, but I actually don't think I've ever heard about babies to babies before. o_o

Anything in particular (specific to babies) she should be looking for? Other than general ratty puffing and hissing and whatnot (if babies will even do that?)?
