Hi Jenny, thanks for your questions. Yes, hamsters are mammals and therefore will provide milk for their young. Hamsters will cannibalize their young if they feel threatened. Therefore, make sure to leave your hamster and her young alone for a few days. All the babies need is their mother's milk. You do not need to provide extra nutrition to them.
