Question Are these baby mice, or something else?

Hi could somebody look at my album and tell me if the pictures are of mice or another rodent? I have been told they are mice, moles, voles, rats, and shrews.
Sadly one of the babies didn't make it Hopefully the other two will make it

Hi i would have said they were more like shrews or something rather than baby mice..........how old are they do you know or did you find them or something? They dont really look like mice to me but i have never actually seen a real life baby mouse lol i am sure there are others here that have that can confirm for you.......all i can say is they are not baby rats lol i have dealt with plenty of baby rats in my time so far lol and they look nothing like those!! I am gonna say shrew/voles is looking highly probable!! Whatever they are they are suuuuuper cute!!!

I think they look like field mice to me. Field mice tend to be brown with a white belly.
