Subject: [IP] 5 yr old pumper

Hi Miranda,
Just one word for you about infusion sites in little kids -- EMLA!  When
they're kind of nervous, everything hurts more.  So, make it numb in the
beginning, then as you and Miranda get more confident, you can always quit
using it.  My 11 year old, who is no weinie, still wants her EMLA for
insertion.  As far as taking it out, the only  painful part of that is
getting the tape off, sort of like taking a band-aid off.  If that's a real
problem, there are several solvents (Unisolve, others) that you can buy that
loosen the sticky before you pull.
