How long do baby squirrels stay with their mothers?

Answer

Baby squirrels usually stay with their mothers for about 12 weeks, after which they are able to fend for themselves. During these weeks, the mother teaches the squirrels where to find food and the best places to build nests. If a mother squirrel leaves when the babies are too young, the babies might need help from humans to survive.
