OK - we love the idea of the Omnipod. Jayden loves the pod! She loves not having tubing. But we are having issues. I'll call Insulet tomorrow when they are open. We started the pod on May 15th. We have had exactly one pod last the full three days. We have gone through a whole box of pods plus one out of the second box, and we're only 15 days in. We've had two occlusion alarms, two communication errors in which we never got to insert the pod at all - I filled both pods with insulin, and they did the double beep, but that was it. PDM kept saying communication error, move and retry, and neither pod ever worked. We've had one that just died for no reason we can find...that was the screamer. I have a stack of dead pods - all but the screamer, which was destroyed after the hammer beating so I didn't get that one back. Two fell off in the shower on the second day - both after soccer practice where she got very sweaty! I can be ok with having to change a pod every two days, but I am going to need a lot of extra pods. For those of you who have been doing this a while, is this going to get better? Did you have this many errors in the beginning, but then smooth sailing after that? I know when we started pumping with MM, we had a lot of issues at the beginning, most of which were resolved with changing from Quicksets to Sils. But there's no change I can do here. She is using her upper buttock/back/hip area, rotating sides. I am learning the art of taping, so I think we're getting the hang of keeping the pod attached. But the communication errors and occlusion errors - what can we do about those? Two of those pods wouldn't even prime - it's like the PDM couldn't find the pod. Thanks - sorry to vent frustrations, but I'm at a loss here. Not ready to give up on the pod by any stretch of the imagination, but I do want this road to get a little more smooth. Screeching pods are really annoying!
