So we are scheduled for our pump prep class on Nov 2! Yeah! They will hook him up to a 'saline' pump to try wearing it for 3 days before we actually order one.
What are people's suggestions on how to talk with my 4yr old son about it? He has seen some other kids with pumps and has said "That's pretty cool." But I just want to be prepared if he is aprehensive, etc. about trying it, what might encourage him to give it a try?
We are big on 'trying' things now (new foods, new games, etc.) but he doesn't always want to. Don't get me wrong - we won't put him on the pump if he truly hates the practice pump. But I do want him to give it a valid trial and be able to talk with him thru his fears. He does really hate his shots so I think he will like the pump at least for that.
Any and all suggestions who have started kids on pumps are appreciated!
