    Hi all my 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 about 6 weeks ago now. She's being so understanding of it all but I would love her to meet other toddlers/children who inject! Just so she can see that it's something others do too!! We're from Derby. Let us know!!

    She's a cutie! Not many people online right now so bump the thread tomorrow if you can or it will just drop into oblivion.

    Hi @Skye's_mummy
    sorry can't help with same age friends -- but
    JDRF do a fab starter info for young toddlers diagnosed -- link here https://jdrf.org.uk/my-child-lives-with-type-1-diabetes/

    I can't begin to tell you how much I empathise with you ------------ I was that child myself long ago ( but not that young )

    keep posting and we will find someone in your locality

    all the best

    Thanks very much it's hard as she doesn't totally understand what's going on, also hypo's are sooo difficult to spot as she's a typical two year old (massive mood swings) that's why I really want her to understand that other people do the same as her every day too. So she doesn't just think I'm being cruel injecting her.
