Re: [IPp] OK, now I'm getting mad!



Melissa,
 
We also just use an IV prep pad.  I rub it on pretty vigorously, then  wait 
 until it is just a little drier than tacky to put the set in. If it's too wet
or too dry it doesn't hold as well.  Dan has never had a problem  with a site 
coming loose in water.  I know every kid's skin in different,  but I hope 
this helps.

guardian of Mike,  19.

Melissa,
Maybe your prepping too much..  How about just using  an alcohol pad,  
mastisol, and then the inset. 
Jesse just  alcohols and sticks the inset in, we live by the beach and he  
swims  in the ocean and pool all day. We very rarely have a site fall   off...
