Trying to stop pumping

I’m trying to slowly stop pumping because I really can’t handle the pain when dealing with 7 kids. I have went from pumping every 4hrs for 10min to pumping every 6 hr for 5min. How quick should I change to 7 or 8 hrs. I can barely handle the 6hrs. Only switched to 6 hrs for like 2-3 days. Should I maybe wait until a wk and then go to 7hrs? Or try and go to 4mins or something. Any ideas?
