1. Breast feeding will almost certainly be draining your energy.
2. What good will you be to your children if you fall apart, or are moody & angry around them?

I think its time you gave yourself a big hug & pat on the back for getting this far & realised to carry on being a great mom you have to take care of yourself too.

You are not a failure if you wean your baby. You are doing what is necessary to give them a happy, healthy mommy who can enjoy her baby's :)

Do it & try & pamper yourself a little too, even if its only a new hairdo. It'll help make you feel more human & a little less like a momy machine.

Hope you feel better soon

Good luck xx
