I ask this question because I am thinking about getting this for my daughter.And I wanted to knowhat your opinions are about it.Is it a good pump or bad?I got the free demo pod yesterday in the mail and i put it on my daughter last night to see how she will do with it.I wanted to know from her if its uncomfortable and if she can handle it while in PE at how it works with her in school.She woke up this morning and never complained about it and she is still wearing it.I will ask her this evening when she comes home from school how it felt.
Has the omnipod worked for you?
Are there any bad things about it?

Hi! While I recognize that this question is almost 3 weeks old at this point I have a website that you can go to and do a search under Omnipod and get the good and bad from other people who are currently using the Omnipod. I currently use the 722 pump, and feel it is right for me, doesn't mean it is right for everybody. From my understanding the Omnipod has its pro's and cons, and like anything else just depends how much you can and are willing to put up with via convenience. While I think pumping is the best form of control for me, it is not for everybody. So here's the link, check it out and if you have any other questions feel free to ask me. Hope this helps!
