I've been using the tslim for over 2 years and love it. I think you'll find it a great positive thing for his control. Basal rates are key for good control. Best of luck in your transition.

pumping will be great. At first this new found freedom of being able to eat whenever can be awesome. But watch out for overeating and weight gain.

It can sneak up on you but also will make nailing down those basal rates tougher. I gained about 10 pounds the first month before I even realized it.
