Suppose to gradually cut back nursing for best results. Then when totally done nursing it will take time for the milk to dry up, cut back on fluids.

Don`t try anything, just let your milk dry up. Don`t stimulate milk production trying it out. Don`t drink as oats drinks because stimulate milk production. You just have to wait for a while.

Gradually is best. Abruptly weaning may cause mastitis, which can make you very ill. Pay attention to your body. If your breasts are very uncomfortable, express just enough to "take the edge off", gradually decreasing the amounts you express over several days. A snug bra, good nutrition and lots of rest will help.

if there are no demand for the milk, the milk supply will naturally dries up, for the meantime you can use a breastfeeding pad to keep your shirt from getting wet. Wait for about a month if it stopped.

Every few days you nurse or pump a little less. So, if you are nursing and/or pumping 6 times per day for a few days and add 1 bottle supplement. The next few days you move down to nursing/pumping 5 times per day while adding 2 bottle supplement. The next few days you go to 4, etc.
