You are NOT a horrible mother for this. BFing, while important, is one small piece of the type of mother you are. Despite my best efforts DD1 refused the breast, and pumping only got us to 4-5 months. DD2 nursed til 13-14 months. Only you can decide to what lengths you are willing to go to continue nursing, but whatever you decide will be what's right for you and your baby.
