Which Pump?

It's time to upgrade our pump after 4 years of pumping. New technology is amazing and also confusing! Share your pro's and con's on latest pumps and cgm's please. It's for my son - 7years old!

Here are some discussions, groups, and info on pumping

this is a good "side-by-side" comparison

The side by side is a great comparison, however it's a bit outdated. Many of the potential drawbacks on the Omnipod have already been fixed. Hopefully they'll update it soon! ;)
And I personally recommend the Omnipod, because it's great for active children. It's tubeless, and also waterproof, so you do not have to disconnect anything. I think it has a really great insertion mechanism because you don't have to see the needle, or touch it or anything. You just press start, and it takes a few seconds (I've counted and found it to be about 5) then a spring loaded insertion device inserts the cannula. I hope this was helpful! :)

Oh boy... gear up the pump wars! :-) :-) :-)

(Mads, Marie's links are a great place to get answers to this question...)

There is another pump comparison chart on John Walsh's website

The end of that should be current-pumps/pump-comparison.
