Re: [IP] RE: Need Info on Omni Pod

Our 11-year-son old has had his Omnipod about seven months and we love it. 
It's his first pump and we saw the tubing as a huge drawback for him, so the 
other brands didn't even entice us.  We use mainly his arms and thighs, but 
we've tried his stomach a few times.  He's not too meaty, so it bothered him 
there.  I'm really curious as to where you put it on your son's bottom.  Our 
son has no interest in putting it in that area, but it'd be great to have 
another rotation site.
