I've been lurking on this board for a while - so much helpful information! I currently pump 6x a day for about 20 minutes and I'm looking to wean (I produce about 30 ounces per day). I looked at the kelly mom link and it sounds good except I'm a little confused if I should be emptying my breasts fully or not. For example, if I choose to go the "dropped pump" route, do I still fully empty my breasts during the other sessions? Or do I just pump until I'm a little more comfortable?
Also, I'm afraid I'm prone to clogs in one of my breasts and that makes weaning seem like a formidable task. And, of course I'd like to do it a little quicker, as I have to travel next week and would like to at least not be as dependent on the pump as I am now. Any advice? Or do I just need to be patient? And should I expect that the first couple of days will be rough? I basically started shaving off some time from my sessions yesterday and I woke up this morning with very hard breasts and one of them feeling particularly lumpy.
