 Hi! I'm not sure but I think the ladies on the Breastfeeding group will also have some ideas for you:

You drop 1 feeding per WEEK until done.

Drop one feeding per week until they are gone is the fastest reccomended method.   Any particular reason you are wanting to wean so early?

1 mom liked this

get off slowly.  The quickest way to do it without sabotaging yourself is to drop one feeding a week (and stick with the drops).  You'll obviously be sore and get engorged.  Refrigerated cabbage leaves in your bra works well for the pain and to help decrease your milk supply (a wet nursing pad from the frige helped me too).

I just gradually started replacing breastfeeding with bottles, then milk in cups.

Drop one feeding per week until you have dropped all the feedings. You don't want to suddenly stop because you can develop a breast infection called mastitis.
