(Amber Buller) #1

i tried sleeping with it clipped to my side, but ended up rolling onto it and waking up cuz it hurt. now i just let it drag after me. i usually put it a few inches from where i'm sleeping..just lay it behind me(since i use my lovehandles). for the most part, i haven't had any problems with it pulling my site out yet.

I usually clip it on the back of my pants, in the small of my back. There are times I simply lay it next to me and let it flop around. my daughter wears it in a pouch and usually sleeps right on it, which i cannot do.

my pump is on a clip and i stick it on the front and from sleeping with it for so long in my sleep ill move it to either side while sleeping

if the cord is long enough stick it under your pillow, or just give up and go to sleep haha that is my solution! it will always wake you up once in a while- but you'll get used to it. sometimes it even falls off the bed, some times it will wake you up sometimes it won't. =)

There is also some pajamas on the website pfsforthecure.com they have a little pocket inside the bottoms that I think is wonderful. The money goes to jdrf.

it's not a lie. the other morning when it came out, i'm not sure if it was because i let it drag along the bed cuz it was already peeling off before bed :P

I have been doing this too! Where the pump faces my back and you can only see the clip on the outside of your pants. I never sleep on my back so this works the best for me.

Just play around with different ideas. I would try just laying it next to me, however, I sleep in a loft in my dorm and I'd rather it not fall off the bed haha. And i don't want to get tangled lol


(Freddy_D98) #10

well amber u can take the tube and put it round the pump and it should stay in ur pocket easier

I just lay it next to me. I sleep all over - my back, both sides, stomach - so anywhere I clip it it gets in the way. I have had it pull at my site a couple of times when I get tangled, but I just half wake up and move it over. It has yet to pull a site out, even when it fell off the bed (I also sleep in a loft)!

I didn't sleep with my pump until we'd been dating for a couple of months...

I just hook it to one of my hips (on the shorts) and if I roll over, I try to roll to the side sans pump...

Hey Amber,

I don't know if this helps, but I have a pair of PJ's that have a small inner pocket - I put the pump in there 90% of the time the rest I just trow it on the bed and it usually stays fine,  They do make a leg band for Minimed - I've used sometimes, but if you can sew ... I'd go buy a band of elastic and do it yourself.

I always wear either shorts or pj pants to bed, It gets clipped right onto the waist band. I never sleep on my stomach so I never have a problem with it tangling, dragging, or pulling. Thank goodness! I have enough sleep related problems! lol

I tried putting it in my pocket/waistline when I first started, but I always ended up rolling right on that side and it would dig into me. So now I just lay it by my side and let it go whereever. I toss and turn a lot, so I usually don't even notice it. I also wake up several times during the night, though, so I move it around when I need to.
