Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq
Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Respected Sister,

The parts of the body that are allowed to be seen by a woman's mahram (eg. father, brother, uncle etc. - besides the husband) are the face, head, chest, arm and calf.

Therefore, it will be impermissible for a woman to expose her breast in front of her brother while breast feeding.

And Allah knows best.
