Does an infant develop the same if they were breastfed or bottle fed with breast milk?

Breast milk: Breast milk whether fed by nursing or in a bottle is the same. However, most babies who nurse get more milk than they would when milk is pumped because your baby is the most efficient breast pump developed ever.
