Re: [IPp] Buffet Meals & Growth Spurts



Sarah,
It's never too early to learn any of the features of your pump.  If I were you, I would read the book that came with your Paradigm, then I'd call your pump trainer.  They would be glad to help you learn how to use the square/dual wave.  It works GREAT for those buffet restaurants!

Good Luck!
