When weaning — whether you’re trimming down to two feedings or to none — it’s considered best to take it slow, cutting out one daily feeding at a time (and waiting a few days in between). If one or both of your breasts become uncomfortably full (or engorged) during this process, express just a little milk. The key is to relieve the pressure, but not drain the breasts. Your body will gradually adjust as you cut out these feedings.
