Re: [IPp] re: sites & Sils vs. QuickSet questions



Tiffany is 9 and just started pumping a month ago.  We had trouble with the
sites sticking when she used her abdomen.  We started using the buttocks,
and have not had any problems.  We found that her underwear and jeans, or
bathing suit bottom helped hold it in place and not crinkle like the
abdomen.
