Will my milk supply decrease if I pump and bottle feed three times a day?

Pumping isn't as effective as a baby because a baby will empty the breast completely but pumping doesn't.
Are you going back to work? Is that the reason for pumping? If not then stick to baby on breast to keep your supply up.
My milk started to run low when my son was around 6 months so I started trying to pump more to make it come back and it did not work for me what so ever actually I am pretty sure it made it worse. The best thing you can do is keep on breastfeeding because once you start slowing down the actual feeding it will decrease.
