    Tape over the set and on the edges of the conector part help it stay on really well. Ali

    Congratulations!!

    We've nearly done 5 yrs of butt/hip sites. Time for us to move around but Rachel won't let us near her tummy...... We never did injections there either...
    Maybe more bribery? :rolleyes:

    we are still new to pumping, but so far the belly is about the only place they like their sites. we tried the back of the leg just under the "but" , but for my daughter, kind of a pain with panties, etc?

    where do we go next????

    What a big brave girl!!! Watch her bg's Alli absorbs better in the tummy. Just wanted to let you know that the insulin may be a little more efficient there. Good job Amanda!!!!:D

    Congrats!!!

    I'm jealous. DD finally went from backside to leg. Still can't convince her to do tummy.

    Well...we've tried a lot of places. Tummy, thigh, back of arm, butt, hip, etc. The best luck we've had is the butt b/c she's got an abundance! Her arm...is good but we don't get a full three days out of it...and same goes for her tummy b/c she doesn't have much meat in either of those places. Her thigh, we get many bent cannulas too b/c she's way too muscular. *sigh*
