Re: [IPp] Switching Pumps

I have a 9 year old son who has been pumping with an animas 1250 for 3 
months now and he is a whiz at it.  We have not pumped with Cozmo so I can't 
compare but I did initially look at that pump and although I felt it had a 
few less button pushing necessary than the animas my son has adapted very, 
very well and knows more about it than I do.  It is certainly something a 
child of that age can understand and manipulate.  He may experience a new 
learning curve but I am cerain he will be able to handle it.  We chose 
animas for the very reasons you mentioned as well as its smaller size.
Good Luck!
