[IP] sticky silhouettes

We used to have the glue stuff stuck on Kevins belly, then someone (Sue I 
think) told us to put down tegaderm first and put the tender/silhouette thru 
that. We havent had a problem since.

Also, the pump bumps are 100% better now that we do this: 

use antibacterial wipe first (not soaps)
IV prep
IVprep around where tender will rest
put site thru

We hardly even see where the site has been

Thanks for the tips over the past few months!!

Happy to be pumping!
(even with a miserable cold)
