OK I have a few questions

My cat, Lilly is two years old she just had her second litter.

First about lilly, I started feeding her canned food a few times a week a few weeks before birth, about two weeks ago she started getting very crazy, chasing anyone into the kitchen crying for more food. IT's frustrating and nerve racking. I don't want to overfeed her or spoil her, but in order to tolerate the whining I'm feeding her half a can twice a day now. What does this behavior mean? She was never like this before.

Now the kitties, they are almost 5 weeks old, and all but one are using the litterbox.

The last kitty will not use the litter box, she immediately gets out, when she starts peeing on the floor and i put her in the box, she still gets out and doesn't finish her businies in the box. Tips?

Also with weaning I've started them on watered down canned food and they eat it but I don't know how to stop them from nursing from their mother, plus the mom will eat all their food if I don't keep her in another room. See the above post about the moms behavior about canned food.

Well the kittens should be weaned on their own time naturally. You can start mixing some chicken with chicken broth baby food with some of the kitten dry food now. Thats okay if you have to seperate the mama while they feed. It's kinda funny My Bengal queen is named Lily short for LiLCritter and she is like that about her wet food. She really freaks and start talking if she shes me go near the drawer I keep the food. Sunce she is nursing her kittens she may need more nutrition than she's getting. I wasn't clear how much you feed mama... You said you give her 1/2 can twice a day? Is she on dry food too? You would definately need to feed her more if thats all she is getting. Read the directions on her canned food. It will tell you 1 can per 4 pounds or something like that. If it's just a supplement and she is on dry food as well. Ignore her behaviour. She's just over excited about her food. Don't reward her for that or she will drive you crazy.

What kind of cat is your Lilly? Do you have pictures to post? Good Luck with them!
