Adjomom replied to Brit's Mom's discussion 'What pumps are your kids using and what are the pros & cons?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"If they are going to swim for a long time, it's a good idea to put something like tegaderm over the pod. When we go on vacation where I know he will be in the water a lot, I bring extra pods."

Adjomom replied to Brit's Mom's discussion 'What pumps are your kids using and what are the pros & cons?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son is 4 and he uses the omnipod. We stared hi on a pump when he was 3 and I chose this one because it wasn't tubed and I thought he'd be less likely to take it off. Now that the pods are smaller, it is even better. I like that he…"

Adjomom replied to Ginger's discussion 'Reaction to adhesive on pump and CGM' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My diabetes educator told me I could put tegaderm underneath and insert either device normally. Skin tac is the thickest barrier wipe product I have found."

Adjomom replied to MisMelissa's discussion 'Caretakers for your Type 1 child' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"In addition to the great advice the other ladies have given, it would probably be a good idea for you to prepare meals and snacks and label with the amount of carbs for anytime you are not around. Once you are comfortable with their ability to do…"

Adjomom replied to SweetBaby's discussion 'Experience regarding travelling internationally with insulin pump and carrying vial of insulin/glucagon with coolant packs.' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"And our endocrinologist told us not to let the pump (or my son attached to it) go through security. He got a pat down. Also best to have non-juice source of carbs (I'm a big fan of honey stingers)"

Adjomom replied to TexasDad's discussion 'Nighttime Routine - Fear of Hypo' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son is almost 4 and he was diagnosed at 21 months. Even at that early age, we didn't do too many middle of the night checks, as long as he went to sleep at a reasonable number. He has a CGM but I haven't been able to use it because he…"

Adjomom replied to SweetBaby's discussion 'Any preference to sites of cannula insertion and preventing scars/lumps?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son is 3 and he uses the Omniopod system. He has historically removed his own pod and then scratched his skin off. He gets ugly looking scabs, but I am amazed at his ability to heal them. I do think that there can be scarring from repeated…"

Adjomom replied to Nic's discussion 'Pool and pods' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"There are other products that increase stickiness that aren't as severe as skin tac. Unisolv is the one that comes to mind. When we were on vacation recently, we had the same problem. I don't think they considered swimming to hrs in the…"

Adjomom replied to Jay (JJ)'s discussion 'Products to Treat Low BG' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I used something called honey stingers. They are tummies made for althetes to use during strenuous exercise. They are 4g of carbs per so its nice because we can usually avoid post low spikes. And my son loves them (he's…"
