Re: [IPp] Two Cozmo Problems

My 5 year old son uses a cozmo ( two months) and he has also stopped
delivery twice now.  I thought it was strange how you could stop delivery
without typing in the code.  I thought well since you have to push the
button twice on opposite sides of the pump it won't happen, but it did,
twice.  He wears his pump in a pouch under his shirt and I haven't seen him
push on the buttons or even try to take it out, but somehow this problem
happened.  The pump will beep after a certain amount of time after delivery
is stopped and he is good to come and tell me his pump is beeping.  Smaller
children would probably never even hear or recognize the beeping though.
