What is the difference between bottle feeding breast milk and nursing an infant?

Both give the same: nutritional value, which is extremely important. Nursing allows a different, closer bonding of mother and baby. However, if nursing is not possible, it is certainly worthwhile and beneficial to the baby to give the expressed breast milk by a bottle.

There are many benefits to breast feeding including evidence that babies who are breast fed for at least four months have fewer infections.
