Strictly pumping is very difficult since a pump is not as efficient as the baby. You will have to pump as often as your baby eats round the clock. I always found it easier to breastfeed when I was with baby and pump when I was working. Depending on how you are storing your pumped milk is how long it can be saved for. If you have a deep freezer it's up to 6 months.

Here is a great site to visit that answers a lot of questions about breastfeeding and storage, and any other questions you may have.
