RE: [IPp] How frequently do you get a new pump?

 Thank you for mentioning the aquapac waterproof case. I have been searching for
a waterproof case for my son's minimed pump and couldn't find one. Are there any
other waterproof cases out there that people recommend.

 Our pump is hitting the end of its warranty and people have suggested it is
time for a new pump. Do you get a new pump when the warranty is up? Also, we
currently have the Minimed, but I would love to keep our options open.
  We have been happy with the pump, but it is kind of a hassle that it is not
waterproof and I have found the customer service to be less than desired.
  We would also love to do CGGM, but it is not covered by insurance yet and I
also don't want to add another thing for my six year old to wear. He transports
so much gear now as it is. :) Our doctor only works with Minimed pumps so if we
do end up switching we may have to switch doctors. I really don't know why he is
not open to working with other pumps :/ .
