American tennis star Serena Williams reaches out to fellow mothers, asking about the right time to stop breastfeeding babies

US tennis star Serena Williams has reached out to fellow mothers asking for advice. It's been just three months since she welcomed her first child with Alexis Ohanian, daughter Alexis Olympia, and the former World No. 1 has already started thinking about when is the right time to stop breastfeeding. She recently tweeted, "Fellow moms: How long did you breastfeed? Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it's time to stop?"

Actor and singer Audra McDonald replied: "I nursed my older daughter until she was almost 2. Still going with my one year old right now. You'll know when it's time to stop. Enjoy! She is beautiful!" Another user wrote, "I went two yrs with my oldest and three yrs with the second. It's different for each of us and however long you're able to nurse is wonderful!"
