OH is frequently woken by our hedgehogs snuffling around in the garden and pushing their supper dish around on the terrace
This seems very late in the year to see hoglets that small.
I don't know how soon temperatures drop where you are DD, but that baby isn't going to be big enough to hibernate in order to survive the winter. Also a lactating sow is going to struggle to put on the weight she needs to survive hibernation. A hedgehog's body should be 30% fat at the start of hibernation.
Could you put some supplementary food out each night? A saucer or shallow bowl of chicken variety catfood, with some chopped unsalted peanuts, mealworms and raisins and also a shallow dish of fresh water could make all the difference to your hedgehogs.
