You will not need a pump at the hospital. Focus on exclusively breastfeeding to establish your supply for at least the first week. Why? Well your breast will supply milk for what baby is eating. If you start pumping it will tell your breast you need to make more milk leading to engorgement... ouch!
As for a pacifier, my dd wouldn't take one and my ds wouldn't till he was like 4 mths but I dk nt think it will be a problem.
When you do start pumping there are a couple ways you can go about it... you can feed her both vreast then pump or what worked well for my daughter not my son cause he was greedy... but I fed on one breast and pumped on the other...
Good luck with the booby milk... hang in there the benefits outweigh the possible frustration
