I have recently found that my 2 year old really likes to have a choice of insulin sites and finger pricks. I've also begun giving his stuffed dog "Sugar" some insulin too (all playing).
I'll even check his stuffed animals' blood sugars and my son always gives them a hug after I do and says, "you did a good job, Sugar Dog". Hopefully it makes him feel better about his diabetes. ")
The other day I walked into the living room and my son was counting to 15 and when I looked to see what he was counting, he had his stuffed bear on the floor with this toy syringe, giving his bear some insulin and counting like mommy and daddy do. It was cute, but at the same time, made me sigh that no 2 year old should know how to do that.
Ahhhh......The tribulations of being a diabetic kid's mom!
