    DS keeps misplacing his Dexcom. I ordered him a Spibelt but he doesn't like it. To assure it fits, I have to wrap it around him twice and then it is uncomfortable. If I make it as small as possible it is still too big. The belt clip isn't working too well either.

    So I am on the search for another pouch. I think a minky type belt with a see through front might work best. Where should I look?

    Thanks in Advance.

    I like the pump packs at pump*tastic.com ... she has ones with windoes too so you don't have to take the cgms to see it. My daughter has had one for over a year, its holding to gether nicely. She has the one that looks like a spibelt, but the material is different...its by far her favorite pouch.

    Did you get the kids' sized SPIbelt? It measures from 14"-23", and my skinny 3 year old has it set to about midway along the belt.

    I ask because, even if you did order a kids' belt, you may have ended up with an adult one. I ordered another recently, and they sent me adult-sized belts labeled as kid-sized 3 times in a row! We finally got the issue resolved, but I thought I was going crazy for a while with kid belts that were enormous on him.

    I know everyone has their own preference, but my son actually cries when we take the SPIbelt off of him to clean it (hence the second belt that we just got!).

    The belts from diabete-ezy.com are great for everyone and there are 4 places all around the waist for pump and cgm.

    check out a tummitote

    Search for a tummitote.

    My 4 year old is so skinny - even the smallest belts fall off of him. The tummitote fits under the shirt and does have a clear velcro pocket and several other velcro pockets - since it goes under the shirt, it isn't as visible as a pouch either.

    We really like ours - especially for soccer. The lady was fantastic and even personalized his belt with Boston red sox patches. She will personalize for you if you want it. Great customer service.
