Re: [IP] I need advice on what to do!

I have been pumping for 5 years. I use the case when I feel it is
appropriate. When I was trained the mini-med representitive who also wears a
pump suggested using a baby sock if wearing a dress. I wear my pump in a
baby sock in my skirt or short pocket. I just snipped a small whole in the
pocket and place it inside. I have never had a problem. Be imaginative,
there are alot of ways to wear it.  -----Original Message-----
