Well... that is stressful.

I would tie up mom, so she doesn't hurt the kids, and get all of them nursing off her.

Sometimes after a day of that mom will except them all.

The one not eating, I would warm him up, rub/massage all over, and dribble in warm sugary electrolyte solution into the mouth. Try to get him to suck. Hopefully warming and rubbing and a little warm sugary electrolytes in the tummy will give enough pep so the kid sucks.

if not... then you must tube feed or take to the vet.
