Drop one feeding a day every 2-3 days. The last feeding is the hardest one to drop, you may get engorged, so be prepared!!! Put ice packs on your breasts if you are engorged, and just pump enough to relieve some of the pressure, but be careful not to pump too much otherwise you'll just produce more milk ( milk production is supply and demand, but I'm sure you already know that!!) That is how I did it when I weaned my youngest. He was only nursing 3 times a day at the one year mark. The last feeding was the most difficult one to drop because I got so engorged, even though I dropped his feedings gradually over a period of days. I remember laying on the couch with an ice pack on one boob and a bag of frozen broccoli on the other because we didn't have anymore ice!! Hopefully, this won't happen to you though.
