They sometimes do that on their first litter.  It's like they don't realize what they are supposed to do.

To save the kittens go to the pet store and get some cat milk replacer.  It's a powder that you mix with water and feed from a bottle.  You can get what you need at the pet store.  Mix and feed by the directions on the label.  If she is not feeding the kittens you must take over.

Good luck.
