Drink juice boxes while asleep?
I don't post often, but I lurk fairly regularly. I love this board and learn a lot from you all. I decided to post because I am awake in the middle of the night after treating a low and cannot get back to sleep.
Woke about 45 mins ago to check DS; he was 58. Got a juice box and, as usual, he sucked it empty within 10 seconds while remaining completely asleep. He does this often, and he will have no memory of this in the morning. I was just wondering how common this is. How do you treat middle-of-the-night lows? Do your kids stay completely asleep?
(BTW, he came back up. He went to bed a little above 200. Per our endo's instructions, we did not treat the 200. People sometimes ask me why I check him every night. This is why. What if I hadn't caught the 58?)
Thanks for your replies!
