Try putting it on your back, Megan if you sleep on sides and stomach, or your front if you sleep on sides and back. That way you don't have to move it at all! I was happy when I figured that out because I don't like waking up!

Comment by MeganJ on May 19, 2012 at 10:19am

You definitely get used to sleeping with it! I keep mine on my waistband (pajama pants, or shorts) and used to wake up and move it every time I rolled over to my other side. Now I move it in my sleep. Just takes a little time!

I'd get me, pump and jack russells all tangled if I didn't somehow attach the pump to me. One of my favorites for sleeping is scrub pants. Stick it in the deep pocket, and my dexcom in another pocket. Men's sleep shorts have pockets!

I found that I move around way too much so me and my cat get totally tangled if I just leave it under a pillow. I wear thermals in the winter and sleep shorts in summer and hook it on the back of the waistband (as I sleep on my side and stomach). I never had it fall off!

Maycri you will get used to it. Mine comes off my pants all the time or slides out of my pocket and when i wake up I have to grab the tubing and follow it to find my pump.

Comment by Maycri on May 18, 2012 at 5:43pm

I slept with it last night haha... i bet it will be different when i'm actually hooked to it but since I roll around a lot it had to move it around with me, explains why i'm yawning so early!

Comment by olu Oog on May 18, 2012 at 12:27pm

Short of actual putting insulin into cartridge and into my body; I experimented with every other aspect of the pump. My trainer expected me to

Comment by Zoe on May 18, 2012 at 12:22pm

Congratulations, Maycri! I used the time after I got my pump and before I did my training to do just that. I read through the manual page by page. Then started with batteries, synchronizing and setting up basic things like date and time. Well, ok...truth be told I started working on my insulin settings, but that's just me..lol

Comment by Maycri on May 17, 2012 at 6:34pm

Got mine today! Fresh out of the box... by next month I'll be a pumper too. Should I keep the batteries in and start using the tester or should I wait til I actually get hooked to it and taught how to synchronize remote and pump? Can I dowload the software already? lol i think i'm way to eager
