Puppies sucking each other

My dog gave birth to 6 beautiful puppies and 4 are males.though the mother is trying hard to make sure they stomach are full regardless of the bit she get everytime they suck on her,they have this bad habbit of sucking each other 's private parts.

how do i discourage such behaviour,i'm worried they can develop some kind of infection.since they suck until they are red.

her previous puppies were 8 in number but i have never experience something like this.
they are four weeks today and i'm starting them on puppy food hoping that will help.
please help
