I' m no expert, but speaking from personal experience here, I think that your cat will continue to feed from her mother as long as mom allows.
I had my female spayed after her first litter 4 years ago and kept the entire family. One of her offspring still suckles from her everyday eventhought she' s not lactating. And her mother still allows her.
