I heard in my childhood that my mother breastfed my cousin father's nephew. However, as we grew up, this rumor faded, and I have been engaged to that cousin and am likely to marry him in a few months. Now, I have seen thrice in a dream that I am marrying my brother. It put me in severe doubts and revived the rumor related to the breastfeeding.
My 7-year-old cousin wants me to breastfeed every time we are together. What should I do? - Quora
If a person is breastfed by a woman for five definite feedings, he becomes her son through breastfeeding and a brother to all her children, both males and females. That is one breastfeeding, because the Lawgiver referred to one breastfeeding in general terms, so it is to be interpreted according to custom, and this is the custom. If the child stops briefly in order to breathe or to rest or because of some distraction, then quickly goes back to the breast, this is regarded as one breastfeeding, just as when a person who is eating pauses briefly then quickly goes back to eating, this is not regarded as two meals, rather it is one. And if the infant moves from one breast to the other, this is one breastfeeding. End quote. Based on that, if you were breastfed by your maternal aunt five times, then you are the brother of all her sons and daughters, and it is not permissible to you to marry one of them. The ruling on breastfeeding has to do with the person who breastfed and his children.
Milk kinship , formed during nursing by a non-biological mother, was a form of fostering allegiance with fellow community members. This particular form of kinship did not exclude particular groups, such that class and other hierarchal systems did not matter in terms of milk kinship participation. Traditionally speaking, this practice predates the early modern period , though it became a widely used mechanism for developing alliances in many hierarchical societies during that time. Milk kinship used the practice of breast feeding by a wet nurse to feed a child either from the same community, or a neighbouring one.
What happens if the baby has an intolerance to something you eat, will you do an elimination diet or just stop giving her the extra breast milk? Heck yeah why not? I have two sisters-in-law, they both had babies last year. One of them had a flare-up of a very painful autoimmune disorder that requires medication, and she was not allowed to breastfeed on the medication.
