Feed the solids before you breastfeed. Your son will start suckling less as you increase his solids.
But you should be feeding a variety of foods, meat, fruit, vegetables and grains, before you cut out breastfeeding entirely.
And don't stop cold turkey. You'll end up with swollen and painful breasts. Your best bet is to wean slowly as you increase the solid foods :)
