From Chicago, Illinois, USA:
Are there a lot of children at age five months put on insulin pumps? If so, what brand do you recommend for the best control? Current dosage is one and a half units of NovoLog in the morning and one unit in the evening. We have a genetic mutation type diabetes and, therefore, are no longer considered type 1.
There are lots of babies on insulin pumps and no one manufacturer's pump seems better or worse. All are the individual preferences of parents and/or diabetes teams. But, if you need the smallest dosing possible, you might wish to consider an Animas pump, a Cozmo pump, or the OmniPod Insulin Management System. At such low current injection doses, you would likely need to dilute insulin and you should discuss this with your diabetes team.
