weaning/plugged ducts

I'm at 11mos 1 week and would like to wean and stop pumping in about another month or so.

I tried twice now, to pump 3 times in one day rather than 4, and within hours I get a plugged duct (in the same spot too).

Any suggestions on how to avoid this?

Instead of dropping a pump have you tried reducing the amount of time you pump? I started reducing time from 15 mins to 10 mins then started dropping pumps. I would get minor clogged ducts but they usually resolved the next pump. It took me about a month to completely stop pumping. Good luck!
