You should stop breeding her. She's obviously not a very good mother, wether it be from stress, or something else. ):
It may also be something that you are doing wrong.

Do this, provide another nest area in the same box. Do not touch or disturb nesting material let alone the litter itself. You may find she moves the litter to the other nest and all may be well. Put her cage in dark place or cover with cloth. At the end of the day, she my just be a bad mum.

When Lily had her first litter, she had 6 babies. She ate one of them, and sadly two tiny babies died. She brought the remaining 3 on well. I agree with the above comments it could be stress or just the fact that she's a bad mum.x x
