It is sounding like you are doing the right thing. The whole ordeal has likely been very stressful for them. Babies sleep a lot anyway, but now that their world has stopped jostling, they may need some make up time. A bit of extra energy like the sugar water will help too.
If you notice a persistently loose droppings, it is probably time to add electrolytes and probitoics to the water to help counteract the effects. Make sure the vents stay clear of poo.
