Mom biting baby

Heaven had a 40 gram kit yesterday, this morning when we checked on the baby he had blood by his ear. We took him out and cleaned him off then put him back with his mom within a few minutes we seen that she was biting him, so we took him back out for a few more minutes and tried again she started biting again. Right now the baby is on the bottom of the cage and mom is up the ledge asleep. She has had kits before and has never done this. Anyone ever had a mom to do this?

Sassy is it possible she is just over grooming? yanno baby ears are paper thin... wouldn't take much to puncture them.

Have you witnessed the behavior? does it seem aggressive?
