It is very difficult to maintain a milk supply by just pumping. Pumping every 2 hours sucks (LOL) but it shouldn't hurt. It so easy to breastfeed that it is worth it to try to work with someone to try and get your baby breastfeeding. You can call a La Leche League Leader or lactation consultant for help. Sometimes things that were an issue in the early days aren't a problem now that the baby is a litle older. For example if you had an epidural all the IV fluid makes your breasts swell and makes it hard for the baby to latch on. It should be in the epidural release form somewhere that you may have more problems breastfeeding. There are moms that can pump for 12 mo or longer.

Here is info about pumping and bottle feeding. This is sometimes called human milk feeding to set it apart from breastfeeding if you see that term.
Info on latching. You can always give it a try
