Is anyone having trouble with the new smaller omnipods? We are seeing pod failures a lot.

We had several in a row and then they seem to have been fine since. my daughter calls it the death squeal and it happened both times at school.

Yes. I use Animas but my husband uses the Omnipod. Currently at 50% failure rate. We carry an entire box of pods with us (in the car, at work, etc) because so many have failed

Yes I stopped because I had a lot of failures and occlusions. I went to the Asante Snap Insulin Pump. Amazing

My daughter went through four or five at the beginning of the new pods. Omnipod replaced them very easily.

Tell Omnipod the error code and perhaps they can give you insight on the problem. Recently heard someone talk about static electricity which she resolved by putting a dryer sheet under the receiver skin.
