Re: [IPp] Re: types of sites

What is the difference between the silhouette and quick set? We just started
pumping on Tuesday and use the sil-serter because that's what "They" gave
us. Is the quick set less painful?
Also the nurse from Minimed told us we could use the arm, thigh,butt and
abdomen. The abdomen anywhere from an inch away from the navel around to the
back. As long as you could pinch up skin you could use it as a site. I
personally think I will just stick to the stomach for a while.
