Re: [IP] Re: Thigh Site



I just started pumping, but, I was taught that if I want to take the pump
off for any length of time, for 1 hour I bolus my basil for that hour, then
as each hour comes to a close, I can either reconnect or connect for a few
secs to bolus my next hours worth of basil. This seems to work great for me
so far.
