Exclusively breast pumping

I’m pregnant with my first baby, and I know that I definitely want to feed my child breast milk. I want to exclusively pump milk only, as for whatever reason I just don’t feel comfortable with the thought of the baby at my breast.

Has anyone ever exclusively pumped their milk? How many months for? Is it much harder work?

I’m not saying I’m completely close minded to having them latch on, but for now I feel most comfortable with pumping.

Any advice ?
