Breastfeeding after 2 years

Q: If my niece (sister's daughter) drank my breast milk at the age of 2 yrs and 2 months, will my son's be considered as her milk brothers?

A: The child will not be regarded as your foster child as the child drank your milk after the period of breastfeeding (i.e. two lunar years). Hence, your sons will not be regarded as the child's milk brothers.

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