    It's easy to drive yourself crazy doing proactive troubleshooting before starting on the pump, but at the end of the day, until you've actually got it up and running, you can't really be sure what will work and what won't.

    Good luck!
    I was going to say this too. We don't use anything and DS never complains about getting a site off and it doesn't bother his skin, we just peel slowly.

    We also don't use anything but alcohol to prep sites either, we find the sites stick to my DS just fine.

    I would see how she does first and then order products if needed.

    Good Luck!

    We bought a bottle of uni solve off amazon. Its amazing! Just a little leave for a minute and it comes off with ease! This was a big deal to my daughter bc she hates bandaids or anything stuck on her!

    Baby oil works.

    We found out that if we don't use the extra adhesive wipes and just stick to the site itself, it isn't hard to remove then.
