Re: [IPp] Just started pumping...infusion set problems!!!

Hi Lori,
Giulia was at a certain period allergic too, so I put  a Tegaderm on  
her skin a insert the set on top of it. It worked really well until  
we changed and now she uses the silouette, and don't put tegaderm on  
it anymore as she isn't allergic to the glue they use. She is 9 and  
also uses Cozmo. The silouete she says is less painfull and less  
itchy than the sofset. I don't know about the Cleo 90.
Good luck, and try to sleep....
