Hello. Background: We are in the process of evaluating Pumps for our 5 year old daughter. Animas and Medtronic seem to be the front-runners in our evaluation. The OmniPod is not available in Texas so I don't know where that would rank. We have been diagnosed for about 6 months. Question: With the approval of Medtronic's Paradigm pump with continuous glucose monitor (CGM), does anyone feel the needles in the CGM are small enough that you would consider it for a 5 year old (less than 40 pounds)? If not, are there other CGM devices available or soon-to-be available that you would recommend? One concern of mine is that after we get the pump, if we also add a CGM, there will be so many things connected to her little body. The newer needles from Medtronic looked smaller, but are they painful to the child? If so, we will wait for newer technology. Yet, the thought of continuous monitoring could help respond to the extreme situations (highs and lows) that she faces. Those lows can be so dangerous at times we aren't expecting (such as nighttime). Thank you.
