"I use a MM pump with cgms and its great. If it were my 4 year old he would be wearing a MM 523 hooked to a 6mm Sure T or a 45 degree polyfin (if he were very thin ). Best of luck with the little fella. He will be fine."

He just had his 4th b-day and still doesn't fully understand what diabetes is and why he has it. We think we like the t-slim but it is new and that makes me nervous.
