    Thank you.

    I have slowly been dropping my pumping sessions and am down to 3x a day from 8-10x a day.

    I am only pumping enough milk to relieve the engorgement so roughly 3oz total from both breast and it seems to be working. Its depressing seeing my milk supply dwindle away I can already see a huge difference in my supply and its sad to have to stop.

    Good for you for continuing so long despite your medical condition. Keep reducing the pumpings slowly so you don't get a breast infection! And like lllshannon said, don't worry if you still have some drops of milk that come out on their own or are hand-expressed even a few months later. That's normal.

    Excellent that you did not stop cold turkey. Seriously. I'm sure it's hard, knowing you are stopping but continuing.
