By: dhtest

  • Make the process of getting started on the pump neat and fun. Your educator can help you with some ideas.
  • Try wearing a pump with saline and let your child see that it is not too hard to use.
  • Go to a pumper’s support group and meet other pumpers. Hear their stories about before and after they went on the pump.
