So as some of you know I'm getting my doe bred soon for Oct babies. She had triplets last time and she was a FF, so she has a better chance of having 3+ kids this time, can a Nigerian Dwarf feed 4 or more kids?, she had plenty of milk for the three she had last time, if your goats have 4 or more kids do you let the mom raise all of them or do you bottle feed at least one or two? I'm new to raising kids so I don't know how many a ND can feed.

Also I didn't save any colostrum when she kidded last, because she had three and I thought she would probably need it all, what brand of store bought colostrum do you recommend in case something would happen?

I'm sure there are a few who can but most can't. I'd just make sure all kids get some colostrum. Most of the time you can just supplement and leave all kids with mom. You'd have to get a powdered colostrum REPLACER for no colostrum at all.
