Re: [IP] pumping and skiing



Hi Ruth--

I've had a pump for about 7 years and have worn it on my bra strap for most
of that time.  After about a year, I discovered hooking it to the middle
front of my bra was MUCH more convenient than anywhere else--esp. when going
to the bathroom.  I, too, ski and bike ride a lot and have never had to
worry about where to keep my pump.  And now the MM 508 has a remote control
which makes bolusing more convenient if in public and you don't want to
reach into your shirt.  You may want to try it.  It works great for me!
(There have to be some advantages to being a woman!)
