?New babies with first time momma?

My mouse is having her first litter of babies there are 3 or 4 in there but she has not made a nest they are scattered about will she collect them and put them together and take care of them should iI put them together for her or will she just not take care of them since she is just dropping them all over. I have never had mice before but when my hampsters that I use to have had theirs this way instead of in a nest they either went back and ate them or just let them die. Poor little things.

the best thing is to leave her alone for a few days. give her some (small amounts) dry kitten food or a half a milkbone brand milkbone every day with her usualy food if you can give herr fresh or died veggies not leafy but carrots, squash, etc. and fruits like apple just a few times a week in smaller amounts would be great. also make sure she has plenty of waterr and nesting maetial. Write their b-day down so you know when to wean them.
