Re: [IPp] Fighting site change?



My daughter who is now 9 and pumping for almost a year went through this and
still occasionally does.  We first set up a reward system.When we do a sight
change, I set up everything and hold the sil-serter, she pushes the button.
We would set the timer for 60 seconds and if she did the insertion in the 60
seconds, she got to pick a "dollar" amount from a basket.  The dollars were
for her favorite things like American Girl stuff or the mall. We kept close
track of her "dollars" and when she got to a certain amount she would spend
them.  This worked for awhile, now we do something different.  Using the
same 60second guide, I try to guess when she will push the button for the
insertion.  I count by mouthing the numbers so she knows when to push.  If I
get the number wrong,Which I usually do, she gets a prize,like a pack of
gum, ice cream cone, colorful marker etc.  I find by focusing on the "prize"
or "contest" Kaycee isn't as upset, it also puts a time limit on the crying.
If there are other people around,we let them take guesses too.  I hope this
helps! Maryann Crawford
