RE: [IPp] What was your biggest hurdle?



Tubing!!!  It takes a while to get used to figuring out what to do with the
tubing.  Should you use the "wrap" method, the "stuff" method, or the "dangle"
method.  Baths are a bit of a pain at first for little ones, because they like
 them so much. Emma just comes to me now to have her pump taken off and the clip
put in the site.  There's a bit of a clothing adjustment.  We had to figure out
how to let her wear dresses without flashing everyone when we got the pump out
of her pack (bike shorts - thank you list!).  I think that's about it.
Everything else is WAY easier.

We are working on getting our 3 year old a pump.

I'm curious what others feel was their biggest hurdle, or challenge, when they
first started the pump with their kids, especially young ones like mine.

Thanks!
