Started with the new, smaller pod today!
At first, I was disappointed, as the new ones still have the same general boxy shape, although they are clearly shorter. Not as immediately visible is that they are also much flatter and DD, who has it on her bottom, said it was much lighter and she hardly felt it while lying on her back in bed.
It makes sense, but still surprised me that the needle on the pod fill syringe was shorter too. The cannula is a bit easier to see, not sure about how useful I find the pink tab that indicates that the cannula fired.
I'm interested to see how calculating IOB for carb blouses works, as that is new to us. If it works well, it could make it easier to have a more standard school routine for snacks with carbs (currently, I let DD have a snack with carbs one day a week and there seems to be little rhyme or reason to how we handle lunch-- just a short time later--on those days).
I'm also wondering if our post-pod change routine of a 1.00 unit "priming" bolus and an increased temp basal will change. Tonight we are only doing the temp basal to see how things go.
