    Ahh.. I like it. How about velco or a way to close the pocket save the pump from jumping boys and it jumping out?

    All the pockets have velcro closure so it shd be secure.

    I could also do buttons and button hole closures if you think if would be better.

    Are you looking for ideas? I love the pump paks that have a clear vinyl face...so you don't have to remove to bolus.....they're great--but hard to find! Robin

    Pump packs seem more popular than the clothing - but that is my perception.

    William has always worn the undershirts (from Pumpwear) with the pocket in the back. He started wearing those when he was 2 and was pumping and now that he is 6 I am having a hard time getting him to change. I know he'll have to put the pump elsewhere in the next year or two so he can start learning how to bolus himself. I think it just feels comfortable and out of the way to have it on his back.

    That little red shirt is adorable! My concern would be that the shirt would pull to the back. The undershirts with the pump on the back work well because they can be fitted close to the body. A sort of breezy/loose shirt seems like it would be back heavy and pull the shirt towards the back. Have you tried it on a kid?
