I went to the Pump station after I had to leave my daughter at the hospital when she was born. Recommended to me by my OB-GYN, I was able to rent an excellent, fast, electronic, get nursing gel pads and a natural nipple lotion to soothe and heal my cracked, sore nipples. I also picked up literature on how to breastfeed correctly. After that initial induction, I went there for breastfeeding support groups and special hard to find nursing and baby products.
The staff there is excellent and very knowledgeable, however it is pricey and difficult to find parking. But, the bottom line is, if you need some support as a parent, they are there to guide and provide you with lots of material. you can also look them up online at www.pumpstation.com. they are located on wilshire between 22nd and 23rd street.
