I think we must do things differently than most people. Jack wears his pump in a clear front pump pouch, so he just has to reach down and push buttons. There is no digging the pump out. We also probably bolus 3-4 times for an average meal. One prebolus, and then more as he eats. And eats and eats and eats. With him bolusing himself, it's much faster for him to just push the buttons than it would be for me to go get the remote. Car trips, parties, etc... he just doses himself. And the fact that they have to stay near you as it delivers is sort of a deal breaker for us, too. So often he just wants to dose and vamoose. I don't know. I thought we would love the Omnipod remote, but during our week on the Pod, it was more of a hassle than anything. We do not always test before we bolus, so it was a hassle to go find it when he wanted to dose. Nighttime is the one time when it was useful. But really, I think it will come down to whether you find the Ping menus tolerable or not. Coming from MM, I did not. Have you thought about the t:slim?
