We are in the proccess of getting my 5 year old a pump. We are so confused! First we were leaning towards the Omnipod due to the lack of tubing. It seemed like the simplest way to go. Then I read some articles about the failure rate for omnipods being something crazy- like 30-50%?! Is that even possible. I also heard of people going through a 90 day supply of pods in 30 and also heard that the Omnipod company Insulet not being very user-friendly/helpful.
I know you will hear good/bad about everything. I just want to make a good choice for her. We went to pre-pumping classes and I have read sooo many things. It is such a hard decision. She is very active and tiny. She is in the 5% for her height and weight; always has been and probably always will be!
Any suggestions to us?
