I put the expecting mother in with the mom and babies and watch them for a while. The babies where trying to suck on the expecting mother. I didn't know it that was ok or not.

When the baby mice suck on an expectant mother, they spoil her nipples, so that when she has her own litter, her babies will be unable to nurse and will starve.

Read the linked article, even though it is in reference to rats rather than mice.
Communal Nesting
