RE: [IP] Sleeping with the pump



My daughter always hooks her pump in the middle of her shirt (on the top)
and she can turn each way without the pump line getting tangled. This is the
best way she could find.

Subject:	[IP] Sleeping with the pump

It's kind of strange: 18 years ago the group of pumpers (around 15 of us, if
I
recall) started to write a book on pumping (which I would LOVE to find or
get a
copy of).  One of the bigger hangups then (as now, apparently) was how to
sleep
with it.

Over the years I've tried many things.  One of the most interesting was a
tee-shirt that my younger sister created a pocket in (I think one of the
companies eventually reproduced this).  I've slept with it 'hanging out' on
the
bed for years but every so often (usually for a few days after waking up
catheter-less) will keep in the pocket of a pair of sweatpants (they are
usually
thick enough to keep the feeling of accidentally laying on it minimized).

>From my memory, the vast majority of this book is STILL very current and
so...
All of this has convinced me to locate a copy of this book.  Off to a Sunday
of
searching through my ancient untouched pre-married paperwork to find ancient
pump related material)
