I don't have experience pumping but I do have experience weaning from the breast. When my older daughter was weaning we would drop one feeding a day. Then she could nurse as much as she wanted at the other times.

So, I don't know if this will transfer, but maybe cut out one pumping session entirely at a time and keep pumping the other times?

Or it sounds like you are trying to make the process faster and I have heard people have good success with cabbage leaves on your breasts/ in your bra. Have you tried that?

Or can you pump just when you are sore (enough to relieve the pressure?)

You have probably thought of all those things but I thought I would just toss them out there. I hope that you start feeling relief soon, feeling engorged is not fun!
