Not Mothering

My mouse Dakota recently had a litter. It seems like she's never with it and nearly every time I look into the cage, she's eating. I am really worried (I am a worry wart). Is her behavior normal? Will the litter turn out well? I am sorry if I am bugging people. This site is full of experienced mice breeders though.

Do the babies have milk bellies? If they do, they're fine.
I'm thinks are working out. Most of the time, mice are splendid little mothers. :)
They have their own internal schedule. I'm sure the babies will be fine. They don't need to be fed every minute (or every twenty minutes) of the day. :)
