This is going to sound strange, wear a snug fitting bra and put cabbage leaves in it. They need to be cold from the refrigerator and you leave them in until they are wilted. My mom told me to do this and it worked.

Whatever you do DO NOT WEAR ANYTHING TIGHT!!! You are already experiencing clogged ducts. Clogged ducts will turn into mastitis which is very painful and you get rather sick (high fever and whatnot) if not taken care of immediately. By wearing anything tight you will guarantee yourself more clogged ducts and most likely mastitis. If you are set on weaning you must do it gradually. Take one feeding away a week and work your way down SLOWLY!! If you quit this way you will be able to be comfortable. Have you considered continuing or donating your milk to some children that it is a matter of life or death that they receive the breastmilk?
