In Sweden we do it like this: 2 hrs before changing the set we use emla- lotion which we cover with tegaderm ( dont know wether you have the same over there) - it numbs /takes away all the feeling in the area where we will put the new set ,so the change of set is totally painless, which i belive is important for younger children.
After 2 hrs . tegaderm goes off and we wipe away the rest of the emla.
To get all off we “wash” with alcogel ( a gel with alcohol in it). Then we just shoot the new set where we prepared for it to be.
Earlier we used Sof-set Micro QR infusion set with the extra “tegaderm” that went with it. The set never could take water or perspiration well an often it fell off.
this site´s in swedish but the pictures will show you what i mean
Now we only use quick set…it never falls off! We are soooo happy! Bathing, jumping, running, warm weather, cold weather gymnastics etc. we can do it all…it´s wonderful!
I have a soon to be 6 ½ year old boy diagnosed with diabetes since before his second birthday: u name it - we tried it! And this works wonders with small children.
