Default Question about the pump

My daughter is 3yrs old has been on an insulin pump for a few months now. When changing her reservoir I've noticed air bubbles and was wondering if this was normal?

You should flick the reservoir until the bubbles rise to the top and push out the bubbles and then pull in more insulin till there's no more bubbles. The bubbles can cause the pump to alarm with an occulusion and mess up the delivery.

The bubbles appear after the 3 days use. The reservoir is clear when I load it but its when we change it they are visible. I'm thinking the seal on the reservoir is faulty and is letting in air.
