Re: [IP] Sleeping with pump

Try clipping it to the front or back (or even side) of your
underwear...whichever is the most comfortable side.  This worked for me.
Or, you can tak an old tube sock or pair of nylons, cut a band out and
use it to contain the pump around your leg at night.

Hey...whatever works!
