I have been seeing more and more newbies and thought it would be nice if us "old timers" put out some things that are now our "must have" D tools. For us it is: Salter scale! Both home and travel version. Air heads, Hailey never gets sick of them and they work really fast. CGMS! IMHO parents should have the option to leave the hospital with the pump and cgms Inject eze when we were on shots. Hailey fought so bad until we got that. Glucophone, it was awesome until Hailey felt she needed a cooler looking phone. I hope someday glucophone upgrade so you can use the more "hip" phones. For now we are back to texting. Another D family! I wish the hospital had someone on staff but since most don't I wish they would tell parents to call JDRF and have you ask for a family to meet. The smaller Apple & Eve juice boxes, the ones with sesame street on them. You can buy them at sam's club and they have less juice. 15 carbs was always way too much to treat a low with Hailey. Spibelt for a pump pack! Perfect for sleeping and sports. Radio shack system for the cgms! Why is MM taking so long getting a parent moniter???? I am so glad I found the radio shack system though, I can confidently sleep through the night knowing I will hear all alarms. I am sure I will think of more but this is my "starter" list So what about you guys! What are in your D "survival" kits? ETA: You can buy a big box of airheads at Sam's club much cheaper than at Walmart.
