Yes: Pumped breast milk will be fine. It is not quite as convenient but has the same nutrition. Pumping is not as good as sucking at stimulating breast milk. He may not want to take it from a bottle but maybe a cup if he is used to your nipple. All the best and congratulations on wanting to continue breast feeding!

Sure: Although some social and professional controversy exists, I feel breastfeeding or pumping breast milk for feeds can be carried out as long as you like.
