Is a woman who is breastfeeding a child excused from fasting?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Question:

Is a woman who is breastfeeding a child under one year old who feeds during the day excused from fasting? If yes, does she have to pay to feed a poor person?


Answer:

Salaams,

She is temporarily excused from fasting, if she fears harm for her child. However, she will have to make up for the missed fast at a later time. In this case, she will not be required to feed a poor person.
