    My 3 year old just got a Dexcom, and I am wondering what some good options are for carrying it around to make sure it is close enough to him at daycare, etc. Putting it in a pants pocket isn't going to work, and most of the stuff I've seen online seems to be for adults. Does anyone have any suggestions or favorite items for such a small child?

    Thanks!

    There are lots of options, people seem to like Tallygear and Spibelt best.

    We use the kids double spibelt. It holds her pump and her Dex, and it is very sturdy. She is super hard on stuff, and the other pump pack we had tried got destroyed pretty quickly. Not the spibelt!

    Spibelt. We just use a single and if she needs to put the Dex in the pouch, it just sits behind her pump

    Tallygear is the most popular belt in our house and SpiBelt is the least. Tons of options. Check "running belts" on Amazon if you have enough sewing ability to shorten things or look for small belts with adjustable bands. Etsy has really cute kid-themed belts, too.

    We use pump pouches from Angel Bear Pump Stuff. They have ones with clear fronts so that you don't have to pull the receiver out to see the screen or push buttons.
