After trying the emptying and block schedule method unsuccessfully, I am considering going with sage tea to reduce my supply. Has anyone tried this, especially anyone who pumps a lot or exclusively? Any advice?
I might consider the herbal path if everything else you have tried doesn't work. Have you considered donating your extra milk? That can be really helpful to someone else.

I would do it. Start with 1/4 cup a day, and see from there. I have no personal experience, but if I am so lucky as to get to birth another babe, I plan to use sage tea from the start. I have tried different things with my first two littles, and struggled with oversupply both times. I have spoken about this with several midwives/co-workers, as well as an herbalist and several LLL Leader peers, and all actually recommended trying it, starting with a low dose.
Donating is a good idea too, but I totally understand wanting to just calm the production a little bit! Good luck.
For greater things are yet to come...
