I'm curious how long it is taking people once you make the decision to stop.

I'm also attempting to go from 3 to 2 as well.

I went down to 3x at 7 months, then 2x at 8.5 months.

Sorry to hear you've had re-occuring mastitis infections, they suck! :o/

As for weaning, since you are prone to infections, it will take longer to wean and you'll need to keep watch for lumps and bumps more than the average EP'er with no issues around clogs and infection, BUT that does not mean you can only drop a couple of minutes each week.
