Re: [IP] sleeping with the pump



for now i sleep with it under my pillow or in bed next to me...i do roll
around some but it rarely gets tangled, only falls off the front of the bed
sometimes.  i do have 2 questions...when it falls off the bed and dangles
there until morning, the tape doesn't come undone at the site and it never
comes out, but i was wondering if this in any way hurts the reservoir or
infusion set tubing.  also, i am moving in with someone soon and i am
wondering how to sleep with the pump when there are other people in the bed
without them getting tangled in the tubing.
