Re: [IP] Child anxiety during set changes

I don't have any answer to the pain, have you tried it yourself? I probably
have more fat than your son, but it doesn't hurt that much.

As far as coming out, what I do is use the provided tape with the sofset and
then put a tegaderm transparent dressing on top. They are waterproof and
hold the sofset in place. I use the 6x7 cm size.

Good Luck,
