My son was diagnosed T1D 23 days ago. I would like to get a CGM, at the very least and hopefully a pump at some point. But my 7yr old heard the words "needle insertion" and refuses to try either. I know he is trying to adjust and I don't want to make it harder on him (the IV's during his hospital stay with DKA were miserable). But I know I would sleep better with a CGM and so would he because I wouldn't wake him up to test! Plus, I'm really nervous about sending him to school without a CGM. Does anyone have advice to convince him to try it, other than "I'm mom and I'm making you try it"? I'm trying to give him as much control as I can, since he didn't ask for this dx. This is such an amazing forum and I've learned so much from reading old posts. I've bought "Think Like A Pancreas" and the Ragnar Hanas book to read while on vacation next week. Thank you!
