It's probably a sensitive subject because everyone here tries to make the absolute best possible decision on the care and management of their child's diabetes. When someone knocks a pump choice, it's almost like some people take it as "you didn't do right by your child." I'm not saying everyone takes it that way, and if they do, they shouldn't. You shouldn't have to defend your choice of pump or your choice of regimen (MDI vs Pump). The most important thing is that the child is happy and healthy, and you chose what best suits your lifestyle. I have my pump preference, and I have specific reasons for the pump we chose, as people have theirs. I think the one thing we really learned from this thread is there is no one perfect pump. They all have features that when combined, would make for one awesome pump. However, we don't have that "perfect pump" to choose, so we make do with what we feel is best. That's why this forum is so great, it helps to make an educated decision on the best pump, or regimen for diabetes management.
