I absolutely do each and every time. My nurse told me that heat helped so I always tried my best to apply as much pressure and heat to the wafer as possible. My procedure when applying everytime is lay down on my bed, hold down with fingers as hard as possible to wafer for 15 minutes, place whole hand over wafer as hard as possible(for both heat and pressure), and lastly, I apply a last 5 minutes of just hard fingers to the wafer to make sure it is as secure as possible.
This technique has always worked very well for me. My system can stay on for 10+ days no problem even with some skin issues.
