"Danielle, The pump has been a million times better than shots for my son. Using the insulin pens, we saw a lot of insulin leak out of the spot where we gave him the shot. It was impossible to hold the needle in for 6 full seconds on a toddler. Now…"

"A family I know has a 2 year old that just started the Ping and they have this case that attaches around the toddler's waist that zips closed and he seems to do well with it... I think they got it at pumpwear.com if I remember correctly..."

"Thank you for your story! I'm glad you added about the potty training, as I was just thinking about that today. We tried a new site today while at his pump check up appt. and luckily he is a rolly polly little guy! Right now I'm just so…"

"Danielle, Our son was diagnosed when he was almost 2 years old in July 2008 and he started on the Animas Ping pump in February 2009. As far as carrying the pump, we looked online but they all seemed very pricey. Luckily, grandma is very handy at…"

How does your toddler wear the Animas Ping?

Hey~ So, Wyatt (18 months) just started wearing his Animas Ping on Tuesday! So far, so good :)I am just wondering how some of the other toddlers wear their pumps? Right now, I've just made sure to put him in pants with a back pocket and bought some of those A-shirts to pull down over the pocket. He is in a group daycare (with an onsite nurse, yay!) so I just want to make sure it is all "out of site, out of mind" for the curious classmates ;) I've been looking up some of the cases, but would…See More

"hey there :) i heard about lots of toddlers pumping,just use the right infusion sight and set don't be afraid of the idea of 24\7 on a baby,and think of the multiple injections he won't have anymore what about the pump,have you decided…"

"Hi ! My daughter was diagnosed at 12 mos and she will turn 3 in 2 weeks. She uses the Animas Ping pump and meter. So far it has been a GREAT experience. We love this pump because you can give low increments of insulin (lower than the minimed) plus…"

Kristin replied to Danielle Walker's discussion 'Looking into a pump for my 17 mth old...'
"The Animas Ping has a full remote option. I assume this would be quite useful for a toddler that you don't need to hold the pump in order to give him a bolus or do anything on the pump. We have another mom, Elizabeth, whose two year old son…"

Jan replied to Danielle Walker's discussion 'Looking into a pump for my 17 mth old...'
"My neice was not a toddler, 8 at diagnosis, and she chose Animas pump. We used the .025 basal increments all the time. Minimed will have .025 increments on their next pump, but if you are getting the pump before the new MM comes out, I would go with…"

Looking into a pump for my 17 mth old...

Hey! My son was diagnosed in August with T1. The pedi. endo. just suggested the pump at his last appointment. We are going to be attending the Pump Orientation class next month. I would like to hear from other parents and caregivers their experience and preferences regarding a pump on a 1 year old.Wyatt will be starting full-time daycare next week and there are 11 other toddlers in his room. We are lucky to have a daycare center in the area that has an onsite nurse. It has taken 3 months for a…See More
