Re: [IP] YIPPEE!!!!

Loree, I agree!  I've learned so much from this list.  I joined  
before I started pumping and with the help of this group I felt I was  
able to make a knowledgeable choice for my pump.  I've since learned  
how to work with my pump and hope to learn more "tricks" and tips in  
the future.
