A Perfect and Practical Pump Pouch Prize

This Sugar Bolus give away has ended! To find out who won, check out this post. Keep coming back to The Princess and The Pump - I've got more fun things to give away to special readers just like you!!

When Sweetpea first started pumping, I started searching for a pouch to carry her precious pink pump. At first, we borrowed a few from a friend until I could find someone to make one. Then, a few wonderful, kindhearted folks offered to make some for us. These pouches were great! But we found that when you wear something 24 hours a day, only taking it off for baths (as Sweetpea does), it gets worn out quick!! I ordered a few pouches from different places. But they all had problems. Some were too bulky and were very obvious under clothing. Some were too big. Sweetpea is a tiny little girl and the options out there for someone her size were few and far between. Some were uncomfortable and rubbed blisters on her belly. And some were just plain ugly.

And then- I found Too Sweet Boutique!




The minute I saw these pouches - with all the cute fabrics and personalization- it was like hearing the angels sing!

I immediately ordered Sweetpea the Diva pouch. (Naturally. What else would you order for a princess?!?)




This pouch was everything it claimed to be. It was well made. It was soft and comfortable to wear. It fit and it stayed close to her body so that it was not at all noticeable under clothing. AND it was darling!

I ordered more! Then I ordered the clear add on for Sweetpea's cgm.



And now, I get the honor of sharing one of these amazing pouches with one of my readers!

Amy, at Too Sweet Boutique, is offering one lucky The Princess and The Pump reader a very special gift! The winner of this contest will win a single pouch of your choosing up to a $45 value!!!

Too Sweet Boutique offers many wonderful pouch options. There are Simply Practical pouches, Perfectly Clear pouches, Omnipod PDM pouches, Simply Practical add ons, Perfectly Clear add ons. You can even "mix it up" by choosing 4 different fabrics and trim for an amazingly unique pouch! There are both girl and boy fabrics available. And, you can add a monogram or a name for personalization! To check out the site click HERE!



Oh- did you want to know what you have to do to win one of these awesome little pouches?!?

    I LOVE these pump packs too!! They are so adorable!!! My little princess is now 8 and was dx'd type 1 when she was 4. Half her life has been living with diabetes...she won't even remember life without it. I hope one day she and all type 1's will not even need pump packs anymore. Please enter her in the drawing, she would be so thrilled to win one of these BEAUTIFUL pump packs! We heard about this on FB, but I'm not sure if that matters or not. Best of luck to everyone...someone is going to be very lucky!
