Does anyone have any fabulous websites for this? We are going to use the Minimed Paradigm 722

I think you can get them right from the minimed website. Another website you might want to look at is groovypatches.com (it's a decorated "sticker" that goes over the actual site). Also, there is a site called insulinpumppockets.com that has covers for the pump that clip onto your pant waist - makes the pump less conspicuous, which I remember you saying was one of the drawbacks for Caleb. Finally, another way to make it less noticable it to wear it in a cell phone holder. This is how Riley wears hers most of the time (she wears it on a belt though b/c it pulls her pants down!), not b/c she wants to hide it, but the clip the pump comes with is just too bulky for her little body. There are a lot of cool cell phone holders out there. You can't use the ones with a magnetic closure (the magnets will mess with the pump), but you CAN cut the magnets out, buy some stick on velcro, and use that instead. We ended up altering acouple of the magnetic ones b/c they were just so cute (obviously Caleb won't want cute!) and they fit her pump perfectly. Hope this helps...
Good luck and we have our fingers crossed for you!!!!

Great idea to cut the magnets out! We have passed up a lot of cute cases because of the magnetic closure. I have to remember that.
