Yeah, we don't like OT meters, because I think they have accuracy issues, so we wouldn't use it as a meter. We also bolus often when we're not checking BG. As for "digging the pump out", we don't do that, either. He wears it in a clear front pump pouch, and pushes the buttons through the front. He'd also be highly annoyed if he had to stay near the remote while a bolus was delivering. I do see the utility for a little kid, but at this point for us, with him bolusing, we just wouldn't use it. The Pod remote is still great, though, because I do the other pump functions still, and it would be cool to change basal rates, set temp basals, etc. remotely. That's why I always suggest that if a remote is important to someone, they look closely at the Pod. The child doesn't have to be close while a bolus delivers with the Pod, either.
