Re: [IPp] Sil Serter

My 9 year old daughter uses the silserter.  She likes it and says sometimes
she doesn't even feel the needle going in.  It is pretty forceful, so the
initial time might be a little scary.  We rarely have trouble with site
failures.  Maryann Crawford mom to Kaycee9 dxd 10/00 pumping 10/01
