I'm trying to go from 2 pumps to 1 (and then off completely) but I'm stuck!

I am sorry to hear you are in pain! I have read posts about people stopping cold turkey. But I chose to do it very slowly over the course of a full month. What I did was to increase the gap between pumps but empty fully at each pump till I got to a point where I could stop cold turkey. Thay way I did not get much clogs that stayed longer than a pump. And yes, I used to use warm compresses when pumping.

I don't about the weaning part, but when you have a clog you do massage it out while pumping.
