Don't go cold turkey. Take out one feeding about once a week or so. This will allow your body to decease your milk supply without feeling so engorged. Try to take out every other feeding. If you are still in lots of pain try to just pump a little so it takes away the pain, but keeps it small enough that it is still telling your body that you want your supply to decrease. Cabbage leaves in your bra or a frozen bag of peas on your breasts can also help.
