We didn't wean until 16 mos and it was more baby-led (he is always go-getter and was ready to wean earlier than some might). I just cut out naptime nursing at first, one at a time. Then he learned better how to self-comfort, and cut out his MOTN feeding on his own. After that, it just left the early morning feeding and bedtime. Early morning wasn't too hard to cut out (DH helped by going in and comforting him so he knew that he wasn't going to get any milk) and then the bedtime feeding he cut on his own. He just started falling asleep without it while we were on vacation so I didn't force i t.
This was over a period of months for us (I basically cut one feeding a month), so I had no engorgement.
