Re: [IP] Pump placement for 4 year old



     Dear Shelly in the MiniMed catalogue there I once saw a criss crossing
strap with pocket arrangement for very young children, it was designed to be
out of reach and worn on the upper back. It shouldn't be in the way when he
goes potty. Check with MiniMed or their website for pump accessories for
additional help to see if it is still available.   PS. I have a 3yr old in
potty training.

Sincerely;  Tom Murphy. Ft.Myers, Fla.
