We created our Pump Pals program because we think it's nice to have a fellow pumper you can turn to who is around the same age as you are and has the same interests as you do. That way, you can get a real sense of what your own day-to-day experience with the pump will be like, as well as ideas on how to tackle various lifestyle situations that crop up. We also try to match you with someone who lives near you if we can.
The Pump Pals themselves are current Animas® pumpers who have volunteered for the job because they love the idea of showing new pumpers the ropes and helping them get the most out of the experience. Not only is it a great way to meet someone with whom you already have a lot in common—it's a great way to get the inside scoop on the many benefits of pumping.
Parents of children who pump are also Pump Pals. They're a great source of information and encouragement to other parents as both child—and family—make the transition to pumping.
