RE: [IPp] 3 year old pumper



 Have you tried spraying an antihistamine on his site before putting it in? I
use Flonase on my daughter's skin and we have zero problems anymore with
itchiness.

Justin sites get itchy, What works for us is changing his sites every 2 days. 
If I want to keep the site in longer I put IV3000 on his skin, and insert 
over it, but the IV3000 doesn't stay on very well when wet.  Justin sites have 
gotten so itchy, that he will scratch the canula right out of his skin when 
 using the Sils. The site is still firmly attached to the skin but the cannula
is
  out. Scary. I believe the Animas pump uses a standard lure lock infusion set
so
using the Quick set shouldn't be a problem. Good luck pumping It is great.
