Can extend breastfeeding to my 2 years old son


AoA Can i extend breastfeeding to my about to be 2 years old son? I have tried alot to switch him to regular or formula milk but he’s not switching at all and demands for motherfeed. He really gets soothed and sleeps peacefully after the motherfeed. I know the allowed time for the feed is 2 years but can you please tell me if there are be any exceptions.

Alaykum Salaam Sister.
Thank you for your question.
According to Ayatullah Sistani its not appropriate to breastfeed after two years. So it is makruh but not haraam.
