Re: [IPp] Re: tubing length



Sarah,
When I say tucking it in I am referring to just cramming it into her jeans.
We have never had any trouble with it crimping or twisting in the four years
she has been pumping.  (she began pumping when she was 7.5 and is now 12
years old).  We use the short tubing and don't a safety loop.  When she
began pumping she used to but after only ripping it out once in a year's
time we decided it wasn't worth the extra tape and mess.

Laura is currently using a Disetronic H-Tron and but we will be changing to
the Dana Pump soon as the warranty is almost out.   Out of curiousity, what
is a pump pak?
