How to drop pumping sessions...

Currently EPing for my 5 month old; 6 sessions a day, including one at 2am! UGGGH! I want to be sure he gets BM at least a year, ideally to 18 months. Have a stash in the freezer because I'm getting way more than he drinks ( 8-10 oz each session!). When the time comes, probably not for a couple more months, how do you cut out pumping sessions without being in pain or discomfort and not totally lose your supply?

You can either do it cold turkey or gradually move the 2am pumping session closer to your next pumping session.

I would probably start now and move it by an hour for a week at a time. That would help with the discomfort.

As for supply, it sounds like you have a good supply established so you should be fine. If you are finding you are not getting enough the you can always add that session back in.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
