My 9 year old daughter has been on the Omnipod for three weeks. Every time she swims it seems the pod gets heavy/waterlogged and the cannula comes out.
Does anyone have any recommendations for us? She is convinced that it is NOT waterproof.
Do most of you wear an arm band over the pod? Where do you get them and are they useful? Are they worn in water?
Also, today was a very humid day and when I changed the pod the edges almost immediately just curled up and it ultimately slipped off within ten minutes. I have heard of using anti-perspirant on the site. Does anyone do this? Does anyone have a brand name of an organic anti-perspirant for this use? I imagine that anti-p/Deodorant is not the right thing?
Thank you very much---we are new at this and finding it a little bit of a struggle.
