This depends why you are stopping. If you are stopping because you want to move to to bottle of breast milk have someone else feed the child when you want her bottle fed every so often. Increase the frequency over time. Eventually you will be able to bottle feed her too.
If you are stopping because you want to move to formula you'll also want someone else feeding her bottles but each bottle should have a SMALL amount of formula (not 50/50). Try about 1/2oz or 20mL of formula per bottle for the first 5 days then increase by that amount every 5 days or so. This small amount will allow time for your child to adjust to the change properly as well as give you time to notice any problems before they become severe (such as a cow's milk intolerance or constipation).
