Re: [IP] Sites/Leg Thing
1. Do other people use their abdomen ABOVE their waist? I've only been
using the area below my navel for the past 2 1/2 years of pumping and am
looking to extend my range, so to speak. I have not yet tried anything
>I hardly ever use under my navel because of the pant waist irritates it
buti do use to the sides and a little over also i use my "behind" area
and it works great.
I use mostly my "love handles"(I really hate to admit them!). When I
use the front of my AB I use the places next to the navel.
I also use my hips and "behind" quite often.
>>2. I often use the leg thing from Unique. Mostly when wearing skirts
(I wear them long). Have not tried the thigh thing yet, although I have
one. Most of the time, though, I put my pump on my belt in its black
case. People ask why I am wearing two beepers (my MD one is on the other
side). I am always surprised that they didn't seem to notice the tubing
coming out of my waist!
When I wear a long skirt i hang a little bag down to my thigh, which
works pretty well.
>This has also happened to me since i often wear my beeper for the
hospital when i am on call.. But for some reason at work no matter how
well i tuck that tubing in it seems to jump out and snagg on everything
on my "lucky days" ha ha
I use a pocket for most other days. The few times I've used a belt I've
found the D to be worse regarding tubing sticking out than the MM is.
>>PS - My talk is in two days. Wish me luck!
