Various Rabbis

14 Nisan 5763
Question
Are there any restrictions on the consumption of human milk? Obviously, babies drink it but is it otherwise kosher for consumption?
Answer
Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 81:7 writes: Woman’s milk is permitted as long as it is drunk from a Keli (cup, bowl etc.)…but an adult who breast feeds is receives a Makat Mardut….an adult in this matter is older than 4 years of age. For further explanation you should refer to the source. Rabbi Ro’i Margalit
