You don't the mother will do all the work (unless you mean like if the mother died) To clean the cage of a mother and new babies take the mother out 1st and put her in whatever you normally do to clean out the cage, then take a paper towel and gently pick up each baby with it (as to avoid getting your scent on them) and place them in a small box or container of some sort, then clean out the cage and put the babies back 1st (with the paper towel or just slide them out of the container then put momma back. Chances are she'll carry one all over the cage and finally place it somewhere and bring the rest.
