Ok, so I'm finding lots of info online about weaning your baby. That's not the issue. My little man, who is 7months, has been wonderful going from breast to bottle and back the whole time. And sadly he's doing pretty well with 50/50 breast/formula to 100% formula. He's such a good baby, thank God!!! Anyway, I'm looking for advice for ME as far as how to stop milk production. I mean, is it better to just stop cold turkey, or should I do it gradually and pump less often and less amounts? I've just started with the gradual right now, and let me tell you, my boobs hurt and are soooo flippin big right now! I've been very fortunate to produce a lot of milk for my son for home and daycare. But I'm ready to stop now. How long does it take for your milk to dry up? How long will I be hurting for like this? Any advice or tips would be appreciated.
