Pumping vs Breastfeeding

My son is almost 4 weeks old-I'm really not enjoying nursing at all. I know breast milk is best for him so I'm thinking of switching to pumping and giving him a bottle. Any thoughts on this? I feel guilty for not wanting to nurse... But I just don't like it. My letdown is really fast so he chokes multiple times almost every feeding- and also I don't like nursing in public

Well, pumping is not going to get you as much milk as nursing will. But it is still the best way to go. Pumping is and can be painful, but definitely try and see how it goes. Honestly breastfeeding is best, but do whatever you can cause momma's milk is still the best regardless if it is in a bottle or from the boob. Good luck!
