You need to stay completely away from her, the babies and the cage. If you've been around enough to know they haven't nursed then you've been around enough to stress her out which is what's going to cause her to kill the babies or abandon them.

She needs to be completely alone, no one around nothing to disturb her and as little noise as possible. Don't change anything around the cage or in the room she's in.

Just a question, why would you breed a hedgehog who is known to have already killed a litter? Responsible breeders retire hedgehogs who show any signs of not being a good mother.
