My breast milk is dropping and I decided to stop breastfeeding. Any tips on how to stop without pain?

Gradually wean by going longer between feeding. You have to let your body take some time to slowly reduce supply until you dry up. If you stop cold turkey you could get clogged ducts or mastitis. It may take some time, but have patience and soon you'll stop producing. Good luck!

Take it slow and go longer between feedings. You may have to pump or nurse to take pressure off but always leave milk in there. Your body will realize it's not needed and eventually stop. There's no quick way to do it, unfortunately.

The best way to stop breastfeeding without pain is to do it slowly. Gradual weaning, by phasing out one feeding or pump session every few days.
