So I have been having some challenging times when my daughter randomly rips off her omnipod/dexcom sensors with the rebuttal that none of her friends have one. I tried to explain of the importance of it (for her sake and ours) but I think she is too young to understand. Looking for any advice how to approach this. At this time, we place both the pod and sensor in the upper gluteal region for the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach. While this is currently working as it is hidden from people to see, I am not sure how long this will last.
At what age do they start to understand? Any help would be greatly appreciated
