    Hi everyone! I have a gorgeous little cheeky monkey baby boy who is fascinated by my insulin pump and tubing! I used to wear it clipped on to my bra which was great for easy access, but stopped once he was born as it dug into him when I was holding him. So instead I gave been wearing it clipped to my waistband but now he keeps trying to grab the pump and the tubing!
    Has anyone got any ideas of how to wear a pump when you have a baby?

    I've always found the pump clips a bit awkward. The best thing for me at that stage was tucking the pump (no clip on) inside a nursing bra. If you get the right design, they have a kind of stretchy bit front and centre that you can use as a pump "pocket". Also useful for tucking in any extra tubing that the little people tend to want to grab if they spot it!

    These ones are pricey but so comfortable and did the job perfectly: https://www.johnlewis.com/bravado-b...3dfajwWd0mHE8fz5FeBoCDJEQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
