In brief: Is your child Ready
It takes time to learn how to program and use an Insulin pump.
If the tube slips out of the skin or gets a kink in it, people won’t get any insulin. Then their blood sugar level can get too high, which can lead to serious problems. Insulin pumps usually cost more than Insulin shots. Wearing or carrying an Insulin pump all the time can be bothersome .Site infection.Etc i would ask is he /she ready.
