Has anyone tried this? I'm between insurers and buying my irrigation kit. I want a short bag in case I don't like irrigation and I was looking through my catalog and noticed the bags for Pediatrics are 5 - 6 inches long vs. 9-12 inches long for adults. *epiphany* I eat children's meals, wear kids clothes, think i can get away with a kids' bag?

I'm calling my ET nurse on this too, but i thought maybe you guys would respond more quickly. :)

One of my ET nurses told me that some people with low output or those who irrigate do use the peds. Good luck!!

Ducks, really? Now I'm really jealous!!! I can't wear kiddie bags, irrigate, nor do I get cute bags with ducks!!! Perhaps the next time my daughter asks me for paper to draw a picture I should just hand her a box of bags. LOL
