Default When should I put back the sand bath for my hamster after birth?

When should I put back the sand bath for my hamster? The wheel shouldn't be put back before the 3rd week right?

Don't put the wheel back until after the pups have been separated from mother. They can get hurt under a wheel with a running adult.
A large sand path should be fine though they do tend to toilet in it and it ends up as a pee pool!

I see... I was planning to separate them on the 3rd week (dwarf hamsters, campbells)
