Provide your kittens a few things of their own that they will like playing with better than your baby's things. Get a sisal wrapped carpeted cat tree. Cats love these and will play for hours on them. My cats also love a toy called the Turbo Scratcher. The cardboard center encourages the cat to scratch it. The toy has a ball on a track that runs around the outside edge & the cats love to bat the ball around the track & even play their own version of ping pong where two cats bat the ball back and forth in the track.
I raised 3 children with cats & dogs. When the kids were babies & toddlers the cats would sometimes sleep beside them in the crib but otherwise chose to stay out of the way & out of reach of the kids. Pets are much like small children in that they need adult supervision. You have to supervise child-pet interactions & teach the child how to be gentle with a pet.
NEVER leave a baby, particularly a young baby, unsupervised with a dog even for a moment!
