Actually it stays put just fine tucked into a waist band. But that makes it harder that you sleep on both stomach and back! But actually I don't think it hurts it to sleep on it and isn't even as uncomfortable as it sounds. So I would just hook it to which ever part you spend less time on. You can also hook it somewhere between a side and the back and that way you'll never be 100% sleeping on it, but more on an angle. You'll figure out what works best for you with trial and error...like most things D related!

I start on my back, then roll to my sides and wake up on my stomach with slobber on my pillow and either no blankets or all of the blankets and a grumpy husband...
I think i'm going to try one of those elastic bands that keep it tight against you, lest my husband wake up with tubing around his neck!

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.

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!

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
