Fasting for breastfeeding mother

Question

I have a four month old baby who I breastfeed but I also give him formula milk. I have been able to fast so far but now I feel weak and thirsty all the time. It has not come to a stage where I have to break my fast yet but as the days here in London are getting warmer I am worried about how I will cope. I also have a four year old and I walk two hours to her nursery and back. What is your advice regarding this?

Is It Permissible To Give Fidyah Instead Of Fasting In Ramadan

Is it permissible to give Fidyah instead of fasting in Ramaḍān?

I am aware of many people, particularly females, who do not fast in Ramaḍān because the fasts are long. Most of these people are not elderly or suffering from any illness.

Please can you shed light on whether it is permissible to give Fidyah instead of fasting in Ramadan as this is widespread in our community. Please also outline if there are any differences of opinion regarding this. Please can you also advise whether diabetic patients should fast in Ramaḍān.
