It's safe but not of benefit as there's no colostrum (the first 24 hours' milk following birth) 3 days after birth. The colostrum contains maternal antibodies which protects the puppy until it can be vaccinated and produce its own antibodies. Any antibody production stimulated by vaccinations in the mother won't make it into the milk at this time. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
