you can stop production after it comes in by simply not nursing/pumping. The breast is all about supply and demand. If the baby (or pump) empties the breast that signals the breast to make more. That's why babies nurse more during growth spurts and get fussy. They keep emptying the breast before it has a chance to make more. Eventually the breast figures it out and ups the calories in the milk or produces more.
