A few days ago we went to an OmniPod informational meeting at Leo's Place. Among eating pizza and playing arcade games, each of us got to wear a demo OmniPod pump. The girls and I wore fake ones, but Dustin wore a real one that had been filled with saline. The insertion is super easy that Dustin said felt like a "light tap". The girls and I also slept with them that night, and it didn't come off when I showered the following morning.
I really like the wireless and tubeless features, but alas, insurance won't pay for it at this time. Lainey had her heart set on getting a new pump, and when I told her we couldn't pay for it she began to cry. It broke my heart! I had a "I hate diabetes" moment, but we won't give up. Lainey will get the pump she wants one day.
