I can see in the room without her being aware.....she's lying across the room still not interested after 30 min. Kittens are sleeping too.
Just an idea....but since you touched her kittens and you are foreign to her...she may no longer recognize these babies as hers. Can you take a towel and rub her with it and then rub each of her kittens. That way, they have her scent on them. KMR is good to have on hand just in case. The can will give you directions on how often to feed them. I do hope she begins to feed them though. BTW...thank you for taking care of this family. Also, keep mom indoors until she can be spayed.
