In brief: Self wean /natural

The best way is to wait until the baby is ready.
Child-led weaning occurs when a child no longer has a need to nurse - nutritionally or emotionally. The most common method is " don't offer" and "don't refuse". More methods of weaning described here http://www.Kellymom.Com/bf/weaning/.

In brief: Quick or slow

It's really up to you.
Many moms drop one feeding at a time-- that's the slow way, and it works. But if you're really ready to stop, feel free to do it quickly: leave baby with grandparents, and take a long weekend trip away, just you and your so. You deserve it!
