I don't think it is a big deal - our 3 yr old filly went back into the field with her mom after 6 weeks - she nursed a couple times and then stopped - they are sometimes in the field together and sometimes not. There is no separation anxiety or problems.
My 2 yr old colt also had the same situation - then when he started getting too frisky I separated him from mom - but when mom was pregnant I put them back together. No issues - my colt even nursed off other mares after weaning. He is fine whether by himself or with my gelding.
