Cutting down breast feeds....?

It's a very depressing thought but I go back to work in 7 weeks and, as well as getting weaning underway before then, I need to switch Grace onto formula for her daytime feeds as I've decided not to express once I'm back at work.

Does anyone know what's the best way to go about doing this? Is dropping 1 feed a week about right or too slow? How quickly will my boobs adapt? I'd like to ebf for as long as possible but want to make sure she's happy on the bottle before I go back as she's such a boob monster and has been v fussy about taking a bottle in the past. I think I'll need to drop 3 daytime feeds in total as I'll continue to BF first and last thing and overnight.

Any advice appreciated! xxxx
