I wanted to know is breast feeding better than pumping for your baby?

Better bonding. While feeding by the breast may provide the same nutrition as pumped or expressed breast milk, breast feeding has the added benefit of promoting bonding between the mother and child. Pumping allows you to receive the same natural benefits of breast feeding while adding some flexibility if you need to be away from your baby to work, for example.
