I also noticed, in the last MiniMed newsletter, that they said to change
the batteries once a month. 

I don't do that, because my batteries have consistently lasted about 3

consistent period, you could just automatically set a change date and
not worry about it. 

Or you could carry spares in your kit when you know your change date is
