Sure it is ok.This may serve as a control as to whether there is a change in the milk, if a baby begins having feeding difficulty.
Years ago, a father discovered that the milk from 1 breast tasted appreciably saltier. His child had stopped nursing on that side. He was able to analyze the milk and found that it did contain a higher sodium (salt) content. Mom happened to have mastitis on that side.
