My 10  year old has been pumping since 2000, first with Disetronic and now 
with  Animas 1200, and she has spent hours and hours in the water at a time,  
mostly still attached to her pump.  We use Tenders, or now the Tender  
minis, applied with a swipe of IV prep followed by gorilla snot (tincture  
of benzoin), and never using any kind of  tape, IV 3000, or any other  

I'm willing to try the tincture of Benzoin, is that something you can buy  
 anywhere or does it have to come from a supplier? I would like to try a little
of it without having to order three months worth!!  I am always  trying to 
find things to make our routines as simple as possible.
My son uses silhouettes, by the way, has been pumping for over a year  now  
with his Cozmo, diagnosed almost two years ago (sometimes it  feels like 
yesterday, when things don't go right).
