Re: [IP] New Pump Questions



I have been on the pump for about 7 months(Animas) and I was worried too
abut sleeping. It isn't a big deal at all! If my pj's have pockets , I stick
it in there, if not I just lay it next to me, you have plenty of leeway to
move around. It just becomes part of your life. Don't sweat it, you'll be
fine!Good luck !
