I think being a working parent feels like a lot of failing for everyone- I felt it before nursing and I'm sure I'd feel it if I left nursing.

Years ago I worked for a Dr. Who's son was a quadriplegic. I asked him, is it hard trying to treat him like your other kids? He said no. He said, you cannot let guilt guide your parenting. He said, my kids have everything they need, love, a roof, food and healthcare. It's not going to be perfect but we are doing the best we can. If I allow myself to feel guilty or like a failure, my kids will feed off of that in negative ways. This really resonated with me. You're doing the best you can :)
