My 5 year old daughter is starting to become interested in pumps. We've already had an OmniPod rep come out to our house for a demo, and Amanda refuses that one (because of the "snap" of when the cannula goes in...it scares her & she said it hurt).
So we've been comparing Ping & MiniMed and are at a standstill now. I'd like to hear from some parents about your experiences with either, and why you chose the pump you did. We don't know what functions are great to have & what we could do without. And we don't know anyone with either pump to ask opinions.
Amanda likes the pink MiniMed over the Ping at this point, but only based on looks, lol.
