In brief: Two basic plans
Cold turkey: bind yourself & send baby to others to bottle feed until they will for you.
(painful & frustrating for both but some do ok.) gradual: drop a feeding every day or two, using bottle instead. At some point body drops supply & you can accelerate coming off. (less pain).
