Question Newborn Kitten Weighs Least in the litter- should I supplement?

Hi everyone! I have a litter of 1 week old kittens. There are 6 kittens, the kittens and momma are indoors. The weights of the kittens today are
8.5oz
2 weigh 7.5 oz
2 weigh 7 oz
and the little one only weighs 5.5oz
They were born a week ago today. I had not weighed them before today, wishing I would have. But noticed the little one is not gaining as the others are. She moves around and seems to be nursing okay. But now I am afraid the others will just push her around as they are looking for nipples. Should I give her some KMR as a supplement?
