"Great response Janice. Karen you may consider starting the pod on the weekend so you will be familiar with the normal sounds. A few days ago I changed my daughter's pod and we were both saying, "what is that?" Pod had all the same…"

Awe! I'm so glad...not that you needed it, but I was able to cheer you. I have not kept up with my friends very well lately and was feeling a bit guilty. Your Pics are fabulous, BTW! She seems like a very special little girl

Daisy,

Insulet Technical Support is the best source for these types of questions. What I'm saying here is just my opinion.

1. Filling the pod to 200 will not make it run better, so just fill it with what you use over 3 days.
2. As far as I know, priming it with the cannula up or down should work the same. But I can see how it seems like it makes sense to prime it with the cannula pointing up :).

Cheers,
Gil
