Re: [IP] my pump arrived!!!!



WELL seems I have woken up and moved it around to my side manually....mostly
I leave it on a side, because I do tend to sleep on my stomach. Been pumping
nearly three weeks, and haven't lost much sleep over it, but
occasionally..YES I know it is there. I haven't had a bit of trouble with
the insertion and sleeping on my stomach. Can't feel it at all.
