Calling all T1 Mommies!! (and dads too of course!)

SO... long story short, Tonight was the first night that we put Averys site in his stomach. He has been on his pump since mid June and since then every 2 to 3 days we change his site and its always been on his little bum or upper hip area. Avery is tall and skinny and really doesnt have much fat anywhere else and so thats where we have been putting it. At his last Dr. app. his Dr. checked his bum and there was no scar tissue or anything building up so we are still fine to do it there but i hate seeing all the little pock marks its leaving so we decided to switch it up. Avery was super brave like he always his but i could tell that that one hurt him more then the other sites did. Now hes kind of walking around with his shirt up and trying not to bump it or anything because hes not used to it and its bugging him.

So what should i do?? Keep just doing what we normally do until the Dr. says switch it up or just put the site in other places if Averys letting us do it?? Do you guys switch it up with your kids? Where do they say it hurts less on them? Like i said, Avery is tall and skinny so i feel bad putting the site in other places but he eventually needs to get used to that right?? I would love to get some advice on this so please let me know your thoughts and what you guys do. Thanks so much!!
