Should a child old enough to make brachos who is not weaned be encouraged to make a bracha on breastmilk? If so which one? Are there any direct sources for this?
It seems from the Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 81:7 that one has to stop nursing by age 4 or 5 if child is weak.
The Shulchan Aruch in 167:19, see also Mishna Brurah 269:1 who holds the age of chinuch is 6 or 7.
so it seems that a bracha should not be recited at all.
