Serena Williams is a rock star on the tennis court, but she’s a new mother too, full of questions and anxieties. This week, she turned to Twitter to ask fellow mothers about their breastfeeding journey.
“How long did you breastfeed? Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it’s time to stop?” she asked.

She was flooded with thousands of responses from encouraging mothers. Most of them agreed that the length of the breastfeeding journey is totally up to the new mama and her baby. Also the emotional feeling thinking about weaning? It’s completely normal as there are so many hormones at play.
Proves that celebrities are just like us.
3.5 years (and I did it on the down low for another 1.5 years). My son didn't want to stop. Best decision I made. Every child I different. He's my only and I wouldn't do anything differently.— Doctor Jo (@jojeegirl) December 6, 2017
Still 🤱🏾 at 18 months, and definitely sad that one day it will be over.— Gerri Kimble (@GerriKimble) December 7, 2017
