Well, are you trying to just cut back or wean completely? If you're weaning completely at this point, you ARE going to be sore. Most of my kids weaned gradually, but I still distinctly remember how it went with my first. She exclusively breastfed for over a year. She refused baby food, table food, cereal, really EVERYTHING. Knowing what I know now, I should have just let her go longer, but I was getting a lot of pressure from family to wean her. Anyhow, my parents agreed to keep her for a weekend to wean her cold-turkey. My boobs were SOOOO sore, and it lasted that whole weekend and several days into the next week. If you're only cutting back one pumping a day, I wouldn't think you should be that sore, but if you're trying to stop entirely, then you would be.
