Also, as your baby grows, the composition of your breast milk will change to accommodate his need, not the volume. Unlike formula, which ingredients stay constant and you have to keep giving more and more to fill your baby's growing tummy; the fat to water ratio and content of breast milk will keep changing according to baby's need.
As much as manufacturers try to imitate baby's sucking mechanism, no pump is exactly the same as a baby sucking. Also, with the closeness and visual stimulation of the baby while breastfeeding, your body produces more milk when baby is at your breast.
Oh, and for future tip: around 3-5 months, if your baby is still exclusively having breast milk, there might be a short period of time when your baby had no poop. Don't panic. It just means the breast milk had been digested and absorbed completely, so nothing is coming out.
