pumping?

So an update on the post i posted last night about the feeding, our first one this morning went a little better and hopefully that is going to revive us both. I do have another question about pumping though. When is a good time to start? I just bought a medela, and am kind of terrified to use it but want to get in the groove of things before i go back to work in june. My DD is 10 days old (i can't believe that!!) and we have been having some issues w/ feeding, so i am scared that if i start pumping and have milk ready in the freezer that i might get tempted to pull out a bottle and give it to her on those long, long nights. I really need to get her fully established on the breast though. Also, when is the right time to give a bottle? I have heard after 3 weeks and not before 6. Maybe somewhere in between??
