Here we will try to make it clear by answers and questions form the married and experienced couples that Can I breastfeed my husband and baby What Islam says?
Is it allowed that my husband caresses and sucks my breasts while I am breastfeeding?
He is often a great help to me when I have overfull breasts, threatening milk congestion, etc., just as when the baby had its growth spurts. Since our baby (2 months) is now sleeping through the night and I get rather bulging breasts at night – usually around 4 am – I wake my husband up so that he drinks so much from me that the feeling of tension decreases and I can sleep for another 2 hours.
This does not bother me at all. I somehow like it. And I am glad that I am not alone with breastfeeding and that my husband is interested in it.
Have you had any experiences like that?
Or should the breasts be there exclusively for the baby during breastfeeding?
Can I breastfeed my husband and baby
- Are there any hygienic concerns? We’ve been doing it this way since the 2nd week of breastfeeding and I haven’t had any mastitis so far. We also do it only once or twice a week and stop for about 10 minutes in the early morning hours.

What you like is allowed. But I personally find the idea that my husband drinks at my breast rather unpleasant. In my opinion, the milk is there for the baby – but what if you enjoy it? An alternative for you would certainly be pumping.

Interesting, my boyfriend also likes to play on my breasts until I drip, and then he likes to lick a few drops off. In the beginning, I was totally uncomfortable with this, but now I can live with it.
But as far as the “drinking” is concerned: maybe you’re trying to make your breast feel a need that doesn’t exist, so it won’t produce less milk, so it’s not a real solution.
Can I breastfeed my husband and baby What Islam says How does Islam regulate this?
According to Ustaz Ansari Taslim, Lc, God willing, this is not prohibited. Husbands can do it. Of course, on the condition that you don’t hurt the wife and don’t harm your own baby. That is, don’t overdo it.
Based on the opinion of the majority of scholars, breastfeeding which makes the child mahram with the mother only occurs if the child is under two years of age. Meanwhile, some scholars, such as Daud Azh-Zhahiri and his followers, stated that breastfeeding still makes marriage haram even if the breastfeeding is an adult.
The opinion of the jumha (majority) of scholars is stronger based on the argument, among others, the Prophet Muhammad SAW said, “In fact, milk (which makes it haram) is only when you feel hungry.” (Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim). That is, those who breastfeed make milk as its staple food. Of course, this is only done by babies who are still breastfeeding, it is impossible for adults to make women’s milk as a staple food.
Another hadith from Umm Salamah RA, Rasulullah SAW said, “Susuan is not forbidden unless it passes through the intestine and when it is not weaned.” (HR. At-Tirmidzi, no. 1152). This means that if the baby is weaned, it means that the next breastfeeding does not make it forbidden for him to marry his breastfeeder.
Ibn Abbas also said, “There is no breastfeeding (which makes marriage haram) except at the age of two. (History of Abdurrazzaq in the book Al-Mushannaf chap 7 p. 465 from Ibn Uyainah, from Amr bin Dinar from Ibn Abbas).
The same statement was made by Ibn Masud about a husband who swallowed his wife’s milk and then he asked Abu Musa Al-Asyari. Abu Musa replied that his wife was haram because of that, but that was corrected by Ibn Masud by saying the same thing as Ibn Abbas’s statement above. Finally, Abu Musa retracted his opinion saying, “Don’t ask me if this scholar (Ibn Masud) is still in your midst.” (Complete history in the book Al-Muwaththa` by Imam Malik, Discussion: Ar-Radha, Chapter: Jami Maa Jaa`A Fii Ar-Radhaah, no. 1290).
The same thing was claimed by Umar bin Al-Kahthab RA, when a man complained that he had intercourse with his slave girl, then his wife came and breastfed the slave saying, “By Allah, now it is haram for you because I have breastfed her. . ” But it turned out that Umar instead decided to this man, you can make relationship with her because she is still your slave.(but now a days it’s not allowed to make relationship with slaves or servants) Susuan is only haram if (the one who is breastfeeding) is still young.” (This history is mentioned by Imam Malik in the book Al-Muwaththa`, no. 1289).
From all the narrations above, it is clear that if someone who is an adult breastfeeds a woman, it has no effect. Unless there is an emergency like what happened in the case of Sahlah bint Suhail, who complained to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam about the difficulty of wearing a hijab from her husband Salim, the former slave of Abu Hudzaifah. Then Rasulullah SAW gave a solution by saying, “Milk him (Salim) and he will become your mahram.” Even though at that time Salim was an adult. (See Sahih Muslim, no. 1453). God knows nature.
