    Weening ?

    Okay so I am going back to work next week and I will only be able to pump at my lunch break and I am wondering how to I go about weening my daughter onto formula, right now she has formula at night and I pump during the day and feed her breast milk during the day.
    My main concern is how do I get my milk to slowly dry up with having to deal with engorged breasts?
    any advice or tips would be great, I also have a lot of breast milk frozen so that as I am switching her completely over she will still have milk
