Ask Me Anything > Videos with pump/site

Hey Scott,

We are moving to the pump for the 3 (almost 4) year old but she's a little nervous since she doesn't have any D-friends so I've been showing her videos and pictures from the Internet, especially of the site change. I thought you had videos somewhere but can't find them. Do you have them somewhere or can you point me in a good direction?

Hi Sydney - We don't have any but if you go to YouTube and search the term, "Omnipod site change" you'll find some. Good luck with the pump, which one is she getting?

We're trying to decide right now. They aren't recommending the Omni pod for another year or two because she's so little but they have recommended the new Medtronic. We just have to decide if that's better over the Animas Ping/Dexcom combo with the goal of eventually moving her to the Omni Pod.
