Jules,
Our son has a lot of issues with MM infusion sets. Tried silhouette and quick sets and sticking to silhouette 6mm's for his lean body (abdomen only) for now. Often CANNOT tolerate more than 2 days before BG's soar. He does have tape/adhesion sensitivities. We always use skinprep as help for a tape to skin barrier. Aside from set issues we are very happy with the MM pump.
