Babytalk's Breast Pump Picks
Type: Hospital-grade rental
Best used for: A preemie or a baby with feeding problems. Also a good idea if you're unsure about wanting to breastfeed and therefore aren't ready to invest in your own pump.
Pros: Fastest, most efficient pumps available. Inexpensive to rent for short periods of time.
Cons: Heavy and unwieldy; not really practical to carry to work.
What to check out: Many hospitals can put you in touch with a lactation consultant or company that offers rentals. Prices range from $1 to $3 per day, plus $60 for your own personal accessory kit (required).
