Does one short breastfeeding makes one mahram?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Salam alai kum! My aunt once mistakenly breast fed me when i was a baby,thinking that i was her daughter(who is a week younger to me). As soon as she found out that it was not her daughter she removed me immdeiately.The length of this feeding might have been less than 2 minutes. What kind of relationship do i have with her daughter, is she mahram to me like a sister or can i marry her? jazak allah khair

Answer

Your aunt is also your foster (Radhaa’ee) mother. Her daughter is your
foster sister. Therefore, you cannot marry her.
