In brief: No "deadline"
There is no "deadline" for breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding and breastmilk have numerous benefits for you and your child. At least 6 months is desirable and if you can make it to one year, that is even better. That being said, many women may only be able to breastfeed for a few months while some will continue to breastfeed into toddlerhood. The choice is up to you and your baby. Wean on your timeline.

In brief: Longer than you thin
The World Health Organization says to nurse for two years.
That is generally not a popular answer here in the US, but the best answer is that longer is better for your baby for several reasons. The prime benefit is enhanced immunity.
