Doubts regarding foster relationship

Q: Three years ago I heard my aunt saying that she once gave me drink from my cousins bottle and I think she turned to me and said “your cousin is your foster sister ” im not sure if I heard that other if that’s just in my head..my aunt said that infront of my baby brother who was breastfeeding at that time .. now I asked my aunt about the matter she said “it must of been cow milk or something “but I fear she might be forgetting I really don’t want any problems in the hereafter so under the most strict islamic law am i allowed to marry my cousin? I have doubt I still think there is a chance I could of drank her breast milk and she is forgetting


A: Normally the bottle does not have the breast milk. Drinking from such a bottle does not have any implications when it is not breast milk.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
