  • You can drop one feed a day or you can co cold turkey. I went cold turkey and it was only bad for about 3 days. I still have the urge to start again, but I know that I can't. Good luck.

  • I stopped little by little as I started working full time. I just couldn't pump out enough milk while I was gone (pumps never really worked for me). You will dry up eventually, it takes some women longer than others. An anti histamine will dry you out if leaky breasts become a problem for you after you have weaned your little one.

  • I too stopped a little at a time. I would just stop one feeding every few days. It took a while but there was no discomfort.
