Does breastfeeding nullify Wudhu?

Q. Does the breastfeeding of a child break the Wudhu of a Mother? After a mother breastfeeds the child, does she have to make Wudhu each time to perform Salaah?

A.  The breastfeeding/nursing/suckling of a child does not nullify the Wudhu. As such, it is not necessary for a breastfeeding mother to renew her Wudhu to perform Salaah after breastfeeding her child if she is already in the state of Wudhu.
