In brief: Shortly after...
Shortly after it is no longer in demand.
Letdown of milk causes release of hormones that promote more milk production.

In brief: After weaning
Your production of milk is based on a supply and demand system. The more your baby nurses the more milk you make.
The less your baby nurses the less milk you make. When your baby begins to wean from the breast your supply will begin to lessen.
