What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?

That said, having breast fed both my kids, pumping when i was away & nursing when i was with baby was a very effective compromise. ...Read more

Pediatrician suggests to wake up my 16 weeks baby by night n breast feed every 3 hr.I used to do till 13 weeks. Does this decrease milk production?
