I agree with kissmiss. That's what I did and never had a problem. The breasts work on a supply and demand basis. If you gradually cut out one feeding at a time, your breasts will adjust and produce less milk.

It does get uncomfortable when you've stopped breast feeding and you get engorged. There are a couple of things that you can help with this though. Wrap your breasts in an ace bandage. The pressure will help stop the production of milk. Also, you can try taking Sudafed, the regular stuff not the new over-the-counter stuff. It does wonders to dry you up. It dried my SIL up in less than a week.
