    This sounds like a great idea! I’m only worried because on the photo entitled “Just like Lou,” the device says the last change was on Saturday, and the next will be on Wednesday. That would mean 4 days between site changes. I personally get into trouble if I wait more than 48 hours between changes, and I often need to change before 2 days have transpired!

      Hi June! Mike is right. The dials can be turned to match your particular days for changing. The timer shown was being handled by a lot of people looking it over before we shot that photo. Lou’s timer sits on our frig and he changes his site every 3 days. Thank you!

    I can see why this could be a useful tool for kids… I just fill mine up with enough insulin to last about 3 days and then I change it when the reservoir on screen is empty (or when it’s completely out of insulin, ha).

      Hi Allison! Lou also fills a new reservoir full when it empties out. Refilling doesn’t always coincide with the 3-day change for him. I also remember times once Lou started driving his own car, he’d be in a hurry to hang out with friends and he’d quickly fill up his reservoir and I’d say, change your site while you’re at it, but in true teenager fashion, he wouldn’t want to take the time to do it. So it never was a consistent ritual we could count on.

        Yikes, that must have been tough. I’m 25 and have been pumping since I was 11… I have always done it the same way!
