Hi, I'm in need of non-vac, extended breastfeeding, bedsharing, AP friendly pedi recommendations (besides Dr. Gordon) on the west side of LA. I have Aetna PPO insurance.


Also looking for recommendations on pre-schools where I can send a lunch, they don't sit and watch tv, it's mainly play learning, etc.


Thank you for any and all responses!

I love Kigala a German Spanish immersion preschool. VERY kind teachers lots of playing and social learning, with compassion and creativity.

Pediatrician: try Linda Nussbaum she practices in the same office like Jay. We LOVE her. She really spends a lot of time with us and respects the children and makes a doctor's visit pleasant and never scary.

Good luck!!

You might take a look at Reggio preschools. Really lovely philosophy, with child-lead activities, imaginative play, and natural, cooperative art. There are several in West Los Angeles. Christopher Robin at La Brea/Melrose is exceptional.

My kids LOVED (and still do) Gan WEst (Jefferson & Inglewood). http://ganwest.com/


Every week, we get a link to a picasa photo album with about 100-150 pictures of the kids being silly, amazed, jumping, learning, drawing, painting, gardening, reading, or whatever.  It's my favorite thing ever.  AND you are always welcome to come in and join the class.
