Hi, I'm Bel. I found this forum googling things about pumps. I have 3 kids. lena is 6 next month and will be diagnosed T1 for a year on the 29th of this month. Sephie is almost 4 and Atticus is 4 months. We are currently using Humalog in a pen and Lantus in hypodermics and an Accucheck Aviva meter (which I hate). We have had Hawk-i insurance (kids insurance in the state of Iowa), but are using Tricare now. I attended a pre-pump class at the hospital yesterday (We go to University of Iowa Children's hospital for our care) and I am trying to choose the best pump for us. I have to pick quick as we are moving to NY in March! At first I thought we would definitely go for the pod. I worried about the tubing getting caught of door handles and what not. Then, I decided it would probably irritate her too much. I started to think the Minimed would be the best for us. But after going to the class and hearing about the more technical stuff (like how the MM only releases insulin 4 times an hour), I decided the Ping was probably for us. Well, today Lena wore a pod demo to school and is still wearing it in bed. I thought for sure it would come off within an hour or so, but she says she likes it. Earlier she was having a full on semi playful wrestling match with her sister and I started to think about what might occur if she had a pump with a tube. So now I don't know. Maybe the Pod is the one for us? After their fight her Pod is still attached. I wish it came in different colors as I think she would really enjoy that feature of the Ping! Also wondering if we should go to the Joslin center in Syracuse or drive twice as far to Rochester to see the endo our current endo specifically recommended. So if anyone has experience with those, feedback would be awesome!
