You shouldn't pump in the early weeks. It can cause sore nipples, sore breasts, and it upsets the natural supply and demand balance. I breastfed 3 children, all over a year, and I never owned a pump.
It's fine to nurse a baby to sleep. Thats the way it's supposed to be. Nursing for an hour is normal. You and your baby should be just hanging out in bed recovering from birth most of the time. LLL used to recommend not getting dressed for the first 4-6 weeks!
