How old was Moses when his mother returned him to Pharaoh's daughter in Egypt? Please I will like to know more about it. How long was he weaned?
Moses was born 1526 B.C. His mother was Jochebed, his father was Amram (Exodus 6:20; Numbers 26:59) and his sister was Miriam (Exodus 15:20-21). Hebrews 11:23 confirms that Moses was hidden for three months by his parents. After Pharaoh’s daughter discovers the baby Moses hidden in a basket by the place where she came to bathe, Miriam persuades her to allow her to find a nurse for the baby (Exodus 2:9). Miriam brings baby Moses back home so her mother can nurse him. After a period of time, Moses had been weaned and was then handed over to Pharaoh’s daughter. How long was that period of time? The Bible does not say. However, there are other sources of information that may give us a clue.
In the ancient world, children were nursed for three or four years before being weaned. (Breast-feeding Practices in Ancient Israel,” 61–83; Stuart, Hosea-Jonah, 32; some of the key evidence comes from 2 Macc 7:27 and 1 Sam 1:23, as well as from the Egyptian “Instructions of Ani” (ANET, 420) (p.10) Source: https://www.wenstrom.org/downloads/written/exposition/exodus/exodus_2.pdf
The exact length of time it took before Moses was weaned is not important. However, the article quoted above provides some interesting information on dates and the characters involved.
