You just handled the first baby on Saturday and said mom was not too happy. You then handled them all on Sunday. That is way too fast. If mom gets stressed, the babies are the ones that will lose. You need to take it slow.

If Mom gets too stressed, she may attack and injure or kill the babies.

Yes and also moms can abandon babies if she gets stressed.
