AHEAD OF TIME

A few days be­fore the sleep­over, con­tact the other par­ent(s) to dis­cuss your child’s needs and the hands-on in­volve­ment re­quired of them for your child to be able to stay over.

ON THE DAY

Make sure your child has hypo snacks in their bag, along with all their es­sen­tial equip­ment and spare bat­ter­ies. Also pack their Per­son­alised Di­a­betes Man­age­ment Plan out­lin­ing their care rou­tine, in­clud­ing emer­gency in­for­ma­tion and your con­tact de­tails. Chat with your child and the other par­ent(s) about their equip­ment and in­sulin in­jec­tions so that ev­ery­one is on the same page.
