From her post it is clear that the mother of two clearly wants to put a halt on suckling the young one, but is undoubtedly facing a major challenge and this led to some reactions from her fans sharing some similar experiences.
Size 8 birthed baby Muraya with her hubby DJ MO in October 2019, and he is currently 18-months-old.

However while there is no particular timeline set on when a mother should stop breastfeeding, this can generally reportedly vary from weeks to even more than 2 years.
It depends solely on the mother's decision to stop the exercise whereby some may only decide to breastfeed for weeks while others may prefer to even upto 3 years.
Infact experts reportedly agree that one should continue breastfeeding as long as it works for them, provided that they begin to introduce some complimentary foods to the baby's diet as he/she grows.
The World Health Organization also recommends exclusively breastfeeding for up to 6 months with continued breastfeeding alongside introduction of complimentary foods upto 2 years of age or older.
While stopping the exercise is not an easy thing one common way to do it is to perform gradual weaning, whereby one can interrupt the normal way of feeding and phase out some sessions.
