she just started pumping today and has these rates already?  did the doctor 
set them?  it just seems TO ME that jumping by 0.5 is a big jump before 
starting out at say maybe one basal and testing quite often to see exactly 
where the sugars go in response to the pump.  now again, i am not a doctor so 
YMMV!  if she is low now, it seems that the basal increase starting at 2:30 
might bring her lower before that dawn phen kicks in... i dont know though.  
just my thoughts :O)
maybe you should start with one basal and test and see a few days of patterns 
to get a better idea?!?!  it's different when all you have is H going in you 
with no long-acting insulin.
good luck!  if you have any questions, feel free to write!
