It will start back up within a few months. It is possible to ovulate during this time so be careful.

Don't rely on breastfeeding as a source of Birth Control... I started back up at 6 weeks postpartum, and I'm breastfeeding my son. The average time, I think, is about 6 months postpartum, but then there are people like me who ovulated 4 weeks after giving birth! (Note: I've known people who didn't start up for a year of two after giving birth.)

What age do babies stop breastfeeding?

There is no real set age when babies stop breastfeeding. It can be up to the mother, or the baby can ween his/herself. In my personal opinion, I would stop breastfeeding when the baby can eat solid food, and/or drink out of a cup. Or maybe even when he or she can say that they are thirsty. But every mother and baby are different.
