    Is it possible to pump milk and feed the baby this way instead of actually breast feeding? Are there any advantages to doing this? Thank You!

    Pumping is definately more work than BFing baby directly and it takes a lot more time wimply because you have to pump and then feed baby after and then wash all the stuff for the pump. However, it can be a real help if you have BFing problems or will be apart much of the time etc.
    Since returning to work, I pump at work for LO to eat the next day. Without that ability to pump, I would not have been successful with giving my LO only BM.
    What is your situation? Maybe that way everyone can tailor their response to suit you best!
