I tried one, but couldn't tell the difference between them.

I gained weight, but I needed to. But from what I gather, that's not

Thanks to Jennifer, I use a Waist-it and a Clip-N-Go. Actually, the
Waist-it doesn't have to be the real thing. Any elastic band that
closes with velcro that I could attach the Clip-N-Go to would work.
And when I wear out this Waist-it, I'll probably make the
replacement instead of buy one.
I didn't like using *just* the Waist-it by itself. It doesn't rotate freely
enough around me to keep the pump from ending up directly
underneath me. I roll around a lot and it needs to keep the pump
at least 6 inches or so away from me so that it doesn't end up
underneath me. The lump wakes me up. I have too much trouble
getting to sleep as it is. I don't need to wrestle with a big ol' lump
underneath me as well! :-)
So, attaching the Clip-N-Go to the Waist-It gives the pump just
enough slack to be pushed easily out from under me.
