Weaning: Breast milk is a supply and demand phenomenon. If you are exclusively pumping, gradually reduce the total amount of time you pump every day, and your production gradually will decline. If you need, you can stop abruptly, but there will be some discomfort. Cold compresses can help decrease the swelling and production.
