I am a new OmniPod user (23 January)... Any advice regarding sleeping with the Pod? I have deliberately avoided sleeping ON the pod. Is it necessary to avoid sleeping directly on the pod? Getting a good night's rest is not my strong suit to begin with.

I always sleep on my pods, I have no problem with it

Thank you Kenny! I thought to myself that they could not have marketed the OmniPod with that negative caveat. It just wouldn't have been practical!!! This is all new to me; and after having experiencing a "screaming" pod right after a restless night....wrong assumption, I guess.

I don't have a pod but I do use a CGMS and I sleep on it.

I DID sleep on my pod last night....no screaming pod. I have a bichon who is greatly appreciative of that fact :?)

yeah. usually, i'll fall asleep NOT laying on my pod, but somehow, i end up ontop of it. no problems... it never hurts me.. and nothing happens to the pod.
