    What pump sites do you use on your toddler? We've been using the back but are concerned about lipoatrophy and overuse. We'd like to add more sites to the mix, but he is a very active toddler who roughhouses a lot. As it is he dislodges his sites frequently. He is also not 100 percent potty-trained yet.
    Suggestions appreciated.

    We've used upperbutt/outer hip exclusively for 10 years now. She just won't change... All with steel needle sets.

    my oldest was dx at 13 months and we exclusively used the booty for the first 3ish of pumping. Tummy was never good for either of my girls and upper/outer thigh pretty good. but overall out best site is the upper back of the arms.

    Love handles, basically above pant line and a little to the side.

    When Emma was that little, it was almost exclusively butt. She was in diapers for about 6 months of pumping. We finally moved to some belly and love handle sites

    Butt here, too, almost exclusively. We rotate as much as humanly possible. There aren't a whole lot of options with little people...
