T1 Diabetes travelling alone with two toddlers

Hi Ladies This coming December I plan to travel to Ireland on my own with an almost 3 year old (who will have her own seat) and my 1.5 year old who will be on my lap. I find that when I am in situations where it is just me and the two children, in order to manage I just focus on taking care of them and forgetting about feeding myself or even check my BG levels. But this time it will be 6 hours -thankfully it's an overnight flight so hopefully they will sleep for some of the time. I will have my…See More

"Thanks Jo, that's encouraging to hear. I've had T1 since I was 17 so I've always had it as a Mom therefore have no way to compare. Glad to hear that it is a legitimate excuse!"

"Yes, and yes, and yes again. I was diagnosed when my boys were ages 2 & 4. At first that was my only symptom, but I didn't want to go to the doctor to tell him I'm a mom and I'm exhausted. I took a nap almost every day with my…"

exhausted

Hi fellow moms I have a 32 month old and a 16 month old. I am exhausted. My husband tries to help me feel better about my exhaustion by saying that because of my diabetes it's harder for me to keep up. But I think that I'm just using it as an excuse. How do you moms find it? Do you feel like you have less energy then your non diabetic mom friends? Is diabetes a legitimate excuse for exhaustion?See More

Sharon,

If you are traveling with airline tickets and an itinerary from them or a travel site like Expedia, etc, you should be able to ask your insurance company for a "vacation override". In general, you have it correct 2X supplies, but take it with a grain of salt. I always carry double the infusion sets and insulin, but maybe only 1.5X the insulin reservoirs, batteries, etc.

Welcome to TuDiabetes! Check out some of the groups on the site. It is a great way to get to know the community. I recently switched to the pump from MDI. About 6 weeks now. I really like it.
