Question Where to put pump when swimming


Here is a question for the ladies. How do you hold your pump when swimming. I have the medtronic pump which is water proof but I'm not sure where to put it on my one piece.

I would ask those dolphins or mermaids who have diabetes what they do with their pumps. Rumor has it the dolphin keeps it in a plastic pouch under their bellies and the mermaid keeps it onshore in a cooler. Now its just a matter of finding a diabetic dolphin or mermaid who wears a pump.
