I hear a lot of parents ask if the Omnipod will be too bulky for their child. On an average adult, the all-in-one pump and infusion set is pretty unobtrusive. On a 45 pound child, however, it CAN be a little obtrusive. Some families have had very positive results with the Omnipod, but what's good for one patient isn't necessarly great for another.
But here's some good news if you're weighing options as you make this decion that has lifestyle AND financial implications: the folks at Omnipod will send you a dummy unit that you can try on to see if it works for you and your kid. For free.
