At our last visit with our new endo, she kept pushing for us to use a pump because she liked the way my son's numbers looked on his MDI routine. She told us that pumping would only make his numbers better, and that it would help to make things easier. Now, I know absolutely nothing about insulin pumps, but I do know that my two kids love to get into things they're not supposed to, and I can just see this turning into a complete disaster. Don't get me wrong. I'd LOVE to not have to give my little guy tons of shots every day to compensate for snacking, meals, etc. I'm just afraid that he'd mess with it and I'm not sure if he's quite ready for something like this. As it stands now, he only lets me give him his insulin shots in his legs or his arms. He's completely petrified of having shots given in his abdomen or his backside. How would I even go about introducing him to something like this? I know it would be a huge change for him, and if he's not really ready for it I can always put it away for now until he gets more comfortable with the idea. I just don't want to go into this and have it turn out to be a horrible experience for him. If he had been dx'd at an earlier age, I don't see that it would have been a problem, but he's only 3 and he's always aware of everything that goes on. I'm just curious as to how some of you introduced the idea of pumping to your kids and how they received the idea. I figured that maybe starting with a CGM would be a little easier on him seeing as there's no insulin involved and if he did tamper with it, I could at least substitute with regular finger pricks. Once he works his way up to being comfortable with that, maybe then I could introduce him to the pump so it wouldn't be so intimidating? Any suggestions or advice is appreciated!
