Post I think Milly doesn't trust me anymore!

I got my hamster Milly five days ago, and the taming was going amazing, we got even got to her sitting on my hand, while I pet her, out of the cage and eating a peanut! But, I think I picked her up out of the cage too much and got too excited(her cage is on the floor for now) and she would turn around in my hand after that, so I'd let her down when she did that. Tonight she was looking away from me in her wheel and wouldn't take a peanut from me :[ (but I left her a fully shelled peanut to play with and break open)

Please tell me how I can regain her trust with me please?

(by the way, she doesn't like being petted much, so I skipped that step. Didn't know if that was important or not)

Personally, I don't think you have lost her trust. Hamsters don't have such excellent memory, and you didn't cause her any harm from what I gather. Hams don't hold grudges against us. She might just be tired out. Leave her for a day or two if you're really worried

I don't think you've lost her trust either, she may just not have been in the mood & she is probably still a little nervous, taming always has it's little ups & downs so if something like this happens give her a break, back off & try again later.

I would just take things slowly over the next few days.
