Hoping that I can find some good suggestions on how my 6yr old son can "wear" his pump and CGM comfortably at the same time.
We started him on the pump in August and he wears a spi-belt for his pump and this has been fantastic, in terms of comfort, discretion and ease of use.
We started the Dexcom a couple of weeks ago and I just can't figure out what to do with it. The nurse that started the Dexcom suggested he wear his pump and have his CGM in his pocket. This is great in theory, but we are talking about a 6 yr old who likes to run and play - I can just see it falling out of his pocket and getting lost on the playground. I could get another spi-belt and have him wear two??? I have also thought about putting both the pump and CGM in his spi-belt but that worries me with all the running around that he does and buttons getting pushed on accident. My latest idea is to have him wear his spi-belt (pump) in the front and his CGM just above his bum in another carrier?? The nurses from school think he should be "wearing" both - it will teach him responsibility.
Ultimately I am thinking that one of you have been in this situation and already have a solution that I haven't thought of!!!
Open to all suggestions:)
Thanks for responding!
