A woman breastfeeding the child from her milk mixed with powdered milk

A: Women's milk that is mixed with powder milk, water, etc., entails the same ruling as pure milk as long as its qualities persist. This is because drinking it while it retains its qualities helps the flesh grow and brings the bones together exactly as direct breastfeeding does. Moreover, the ruling on women's milk that is mixed with powder milk as described above and the ruling on pure milk are the same for the generality of proofs in this regard. Some of these proofs are the Hadiths in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Milk relationships are equal to blood relationships in rendering marriage unlawful, i.e. whatever is prohibited due to blood relationships is also prohibited by milk relationships. And: Breastfeeding (Part No. 21; Page No. 43) is only that brings bones together and grows the flesh. On the other hand, one time of breastfeeding is counted when the baby stops feeding, i.e. releases one breast to move to another or to breathe. Whenever the baby stops feeding, one time of breastfeeding counts and so on.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
