I did this route in the beginning of weaning this time around and I can't say I ever ended up in the middle of a let-down while dropping my minutes, so this has never even crossed my mind what one would do!?


I would definately stop hand expression after each session and I'd say really the choice is yours to allow the let-down or stop just before.

When I was weaning, I had MANY sessions where I had to quit in the middle of a let down. Some days I didn't have the mental fortitude to do it though, so I ended up pumping for a few extra minutes.

I VERY SLOWLY dropped minutes, so I knew I wouldn't be extremely full next time around if I did stop in the middle of a letdown. I figured if I really wanted to quit, I had to start dropping my supply somehow, and not fully emptying did the trick.

HTH.

I was at 4x @ 30min each and I started with just dropping one daytime one so 3x @ 30min.
