mothers who breastfeed should fast?

Question:
Is it mandatory that the mothers who breastfeed should fast?
Answer:
Breastfeeding women have the concession for not fasting.As the  lactating breastfeeding women need sufficient food, islam permits them to not observe fasting.

2276 أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ مَنْصُورٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُسْلِمُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ وُهَيْبِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ سَوَادَةَ الْقُشَيْرِيُّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَجُلٌ مِنْهُمْ أَنَّهُ أَتَى النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِالْمَدِينَةِ وَهُوَ يَتَغَدَّى فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هَلُمَّ إِلَى الْغَدَاءِ فَقَالَ إِنِّي صَائِمٌ فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَضَعَ لِلْمُسَافِرِ الصَّوْمَ وَشَطْرَ الصَّلَاةِ وَعَنْ الْحُبْلَى وَالْمُرْضِعِ رواه النسائي

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said :
Prophet gave the concession to pregnant and breastfeeding woman from fasting. [ Reported by Anas bin malik (raa) : Nasa’ee 2276 ]
Both the child and the mother may get debiled when a woman breastfeeds her child while
she observes fasting.Therefore the breastfeeding mother is now like a sick person.Its permitted for her to not fast.

...but the sick and the traveller among you can calculate them (and observe them) on some other days. [Qur’an 2:184]

But at the same time when a person recovers from his/her illness, its mandatory to observe the missed days of fasting. Therefore a breastfeeding woman should observe fasting when she gets the opportunity.
