Hello! I have some new questions that have come up since starting OP and I was wondering how you all handle these issues.
1) I worry that Mason's Pod could alarm in the middle of the night and it would not wake him. We are on the first floor of our house and Mason is at the opposite end on the second floor. I purchased a baby monitor and the range is too far. I check him between 2-3 evey night and sometimes between 11-12 if he goes to sleep with IOB. Do you guys hear Pod alarms in the night? Do you use a baby monitor?
2) Mason has breakfast at 7am. Snack at school is at 9:30am. Lunch is at 11:30am.
I am beginning to see that the IOB feature on other brands of pumps is far more important than I had originally thought. Our current plan is:
-the principal and secretary are bolusing for carbs at snack time. No BG check as there is still IOB from breakfast and I want to keep the process simple since there is no nurse at school at that hour.
-then at lunch we have IOB from snack so the Endo does not want us to correct at lunch.
Obviously we are stacking (I think this is the appropriate term) insulin all morning and I see why but I hate that we are not correcting him all day long at school. My nurse will ONLY do what is on the 504 and signed by an ENDO. If I make any changes, they must be signed by the Endo. She is great but a little difficult in that I, as a parent, have to make adjustments, as needed. So, if he is high at lunch it could be due to snack IOB, so no correction. If he is LOW, then I need her to correct with OP as OP recommends so the low is corrected. Is there a better way? Should I go to zero carb snacks? Any ideas/suggestions? Am I over thinking this? Is this as good as it can be? I want to have a good plan in place before I redo my 504 because tweaking it means endo signature.
Sorry for rambling. I hope this makes sense:)
