Foster relationship

Q: I wanted to know what is the masala with regards to someone else's child drinking your breatmilk? Does the woman become the foster mother or only if a certain amount is drank... and is it necessary to be drank from the breast or even if the child drank it from a bottle?

A: If the child drank any amount of breast milk, whether directly from the breast of a woman or from a milk bottle, foster relationship will be established.

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