Congrats! I love my Ping, I'm sure you will too :)

I have a few different cases/pouches for different uses. If you bring the ping with you shopping, you'll find it'll fit in a number of cell phone cases.

Putting it in a baby sock and attaching inside your clothes with a safety pin is one of my favorite 'cases'.

Just wanted all to know that I was hooked up today with my one touch ping and so far it seems to be working great . I am on the U500 insulin so we ( trainer and I ) are taking it slow with the flow rates . Also I am looking for a case for the pump , not sure if I want a belly band one or what . Will try and keep all updated . Roger

Also, Animas themselves give discounts for people with low income so if that is a possibility for you do apply. I pay 20% of the cost for Animas supplies on my insurance and then Animas gives me another 30% off that.

Best price for supplies would depend on who is contracted with your insurance as a preferred provider.

Since I am going back to Animas from Omnipod (you can only get supplies from them) I want to know where you get your supplies at the best price. I did use "Liberty Medical" before. I just heard about "Total Diabetes Supply" but they won't answer their contact links.

Suggestions?

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!

Comment by Zoe on May 19, 2012 at 10:56am

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!
