Yeah, that. How long do you pump at each session? However long you do at the midday session, cut it by 5 minutes every couple of days until you are only pumping 5 minutes. Then try skipping that session. Once you adjust to that, choose another (probably the evening) and cut back the same way. Or cut 5 minutes off each session, if that is comfortable enough for you. It will take a few weeks, but is more like weaning the baby from nursing.
