Do i have to pump when breastfeeding? Baby’s feeding fine and I'm not in pain, just wondering if I have to pump or if i can just feed?

You don’t have to pump when breastfeeding. Only if you want to give baby a bottle of breast milk or if you're in pain.

I breastfeed and bottle feed mainly, but I don't pump. I did at first but now don't bother. She's still getting enough milk out of me to fulfill her needs. So no, I don't think you have to especially if you're not in pain.
