Hi, there is no medicine to decrease milk production. Either u can completely stop it with medicines or you can continue great feeding. Feed two to three hourly, so u will not feel congestion and pain. You can do hot fomentation to reduce pain. You have to use feeding bra or one size larger. Don't worry about Size.

Hello.... It's natural... During pregnancy and lactation breast increases in size .... You cannot decrease the size of breast now. After few months with complete stoppage of lactation breast shrinks... Milk secretion can be reduced by medicines but you don't need them. Breastfeeding should continue till 7-8 months, continue breastfeeding... You can worry about size latter.
