Am I taking something away from my baby if I just pump and bottle feed her? Pumping is less painful for me.

In brief: Not really

Pumping although more difficult for you is okay.
Your baby will get the same goodness from the breast milk. The major problem comes from being able to keep up with your babies demands. Long term pumping is not easy.
