For us yes, I still am confused as whey we even waited 6 weeks as our endo didn't like to do diluted insulin but instead we were giving "smidges or wiffs" of insulin. A not yet two year old doesn't need much insulin at all and therefor it would have been a great benefit to have started with being able to accurately dose him and have a tool that kept track of the insulin working so that we could either treat the high again or know that it would come down with the amount of insulin that was still working. And to know when he was low how much insulin was still going so that we weren't over treating so often. Yes a rookie thing, but the pump has helped us dramatically with such a young small child whom needs less than 5 units of insulin a day. So that we can parent him without always having to worry if our smidges or wiffs were the right guesses for that meal.
