Transitioning off the boob!

I’ve been breastfeeding 6 months and I’m starting work again. I’ll prob start introducing formula more and how does this affect your milk production? Does it hurt? How best to not make it hurt? How often should I not pump ?

Just personal experience. Don't reduce breastfeeding times too fast. It hurts your body your hormone fluctuates. Milk production is supply and demand. If you reduce feeding it'll produce less. I would suggest to pump the milk out if you feel sore and too engorged. But don't pump longer than 5 mins. (midwife/ lactation consultant told me) because then you stimulate it to produce more milk. I tried massaging it to let down extra milk, hot shower, hot compress all help.
