does milk expressed through breast pump has the same effect as feeding directly through breast?

Hi.. My 2 weeks old baby girl is not showing interest in sucking and cries a lot while I breast feeding directly. but drink a lot of milk if the same milk is expressed through me. please suggest me whether continue to give her my expressed breast milk or should I make her to suck it directly. because while giving directly I am also getting worried about whether she is getting enough milk or not

hi sundari viswa ! babies find bottle sucking easier and difficult to suck directly as it requires more hard work .probably she is also not able to latch properly. keep trying feeding directly when she is sleepy. also try and help her latch properly by holding her in the right position . if need be take help of lactation expert.
