Pumping too much but changing jobs

I have a somewhat unique situation (I think). I am a full-time working mom who has been pumping 2x per day at work (morning and afternoon) and breastfeeding over my lunch hour (or pumping) since he was 6 weeks old. My baby is almost 6 months old and I have been able to store up a VERY large supply. I have been getting 7-11 ounces in the morning and 3-5 in the afternoon pumping session and he only eats 6-10 ounces at daycare (you do the math :)). We will be moving sometime in the next 2-5 months and I would like to not pump after I begin my new job. I also still want him to be able to have breast milk until he is at least one year old. He JUST started on cereal this last week. I am just trying to figure out how much milk he will need from this point forward to one year old. How much milk do they drink/day? Is it okay for me to start pumping only once/day at work or do I need to keep building my freezer supply? I am getting sick of being hooked to the pump :). Thanks!
