You could start pumping whenever. They suggest waiting 6 weeks to introduce bottles, to avoid confusion.

Wait until your supply is well established to begin pumping or using bottles. Both can affect your supply in the early days, if you aren't careful. 6 weeks is usually a good time frame to consider breastfeeding as well established.

When you give your daughter a bottle, don't forget to pump! You will need to pump anytime your baby has a bottle to keep your supply up.
