Feral kittens or kittens that are not weaner properly tend to suckle other kittens, objects, even humans for quite some time. Some cats never fully outgrow the habit, others drop it within a week. The suckling itself isn't something to worry about, but the fact that it's directed towards another kitten is something to work on. I like to suckle on my bed; my vet thinks I was separated from my mother too soon, so the soft fuzzy padding of my bed reminds me of kitty mom. My human mom and dad just let me do it; it's not hurting anything, and I haven't tried to suckle my brother or sister. My suggestion would be to make sure you have a nice soft blanket nearby; if mom catches you suckling on your brother or sister, have her pick you up and put you on the blanket instead.
As for the poop - have you been dewormed yet? A trip to the vet is probably a good idea at this point; all kitties need to be dewormed.
