It needs to be a little bigger than mom and if the kits are nuggled in the back of the box

That's normal. You have to be careful when holding them because they move and jerk. Seem to be
very sensitive to touch.

Glad she figured it out! Makes your life easier. If she does have another litter you'll have to
wean the older two. Hopefully she isn't.
