I am sorry you are worried about the babes. Sometimes a young mum will not have enough milk. The first 3 days the kittens moslty get colostrum from Winnie. That substance gives them immunity from disease.
You can help by feeding Winnie plenty of tinned food as it contains 60% water. You can also give her cows or goats milk as long as she does not have loose stools.
Kittens that are feeding well act happy, sleepy and satisfied. If yours seem fussy and cry a lot you may want to supplement their feedings with kitten formula and tiny bottles.
Please let me know how the new family is doing.
