Re: [IP] Going to the Beach

   Just a cautionary note: 2 years ago, Melissa went to the beach with a 
family she babysits for. She disconnected, left her pump up at the house, 
played in the ocean with the kids, reconnected when they stopped back at the 
house on several occasions. No problem.....EXCEPT when she showered 
afterwards, she noticed that her set had A LOT of sand trapped underneath the 
Tegaderm!...She no longer uses Tegaderm since she switched to Silhouettes, 
but nonethless, it's worth noting that even if the set appears fine, double 
check that sand hasn't settled underneath.

Regards, Renee ( pump-mom to 16 yr old Melissa)
