Not fasting due to breastfeeding

Can a woman not to fast in Ramadan if she is breastfeeding a 15 months baby who is takes other aliments besides his mother’s milk if she finds it difficult?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Breastfeeding is till 2 years. In her case she needs to try to fast Ramadan but if the fasting affects her milk, then she does not fast and feeds a needy Muslim a meal for each day she did not fast as a Kaffarah.
