Foster cat just had kittens

I recently just took in a new pregnant cat who is less then a year old and she just had 6 happy and seemingly healthy kittens. It's been almost a year since i have had kitten's but this cat who's name is mia she is an overly friendly cat who is in mine and my fiancee's room right now but everytime we come into the room and she is feeding her kitten's she hop's right out and want's attention and i feel so bad for the kitten's that they aren't getting enough milk and one kitten has already opened it's eye and they are only 5 day's old. So my question's are do i put them in my spare room so they can get more milk we barely go in that room and when do i know to step in and start feeding them myself incase if they are not getting enough milk and alot of the time i am sitting by the box petting her so that she will stay in the box long enough for them to get some milk or i have to hold her down so that she will stay.

I have no experience with a nursing momma cat - but please post pictures of the kittens!
If you are really concerned they are not getting enough you can always weigh them daily to make sure they are gaining weight. I would consult a vet to find out how much they should gain per day.
