Bats are completely dependent on their mothers when born. They cannot fly and must roost while their mothers forage for food. Mother bats feed their offspring milk for 2 to 4 weeks, after which the offspring are weaned and learn to fly.
Bats care for their young a lot like humans do. During 2 to 6 weeks, female bats make sure the babies are warm, clean and are fed milk daily.
