Camping with Newly Diagnosed 6 year old

Posted on June 22, 2012 at 11:28am 0 Comments

Hey Everyone,
I was hoping someone has had some experience camping with the Omnipod. We have a camping trip scheduled for July 13 and we will be starting the Omnipod on July 6th. (I know we are cutting it very close). I was hoping to get some feedback on what we should pack, food ideas, experiences, etc. Anything would be helpful. My son was diagnosed on 04/02/12, so this is all very new to us.
