    Sophie, who is getting close to 3, and sleeps through the night, has "alerted" us the past 2 nights in a row to lows:eek::eek:

    Monday, Sam goes to bed at 9:30. He was 120 before bed and had a yogurt and bolused for it around 9. We check him at 11 for the first check. Sophie kept waking up starting at 10:15, 10:20, etc. I finally check him at 10:30 and he is 43:eek:

    Last night, check him at 11, he's 140, I set the alarm for 4 hours to check again as he has been stable at night (whatever stable is). 1 am, Sophie is up again, I check him and he's 70.

    Anyone ever hear of kids being able to detect low blood sugars??? They do share an amazing bond, but this is just so out of the ordinary!! She's done this before.

    That's pretty cool. Maybe she just hears funny noises when your son is low??
    My youngest will come and get us if our son with D is low, but only because the latter will call and we may not hear him right away.
    Which reminds me, we need a baby phone thingy.

    Sam doesn't make any noises. Their rooms are next to eachother, but both sleep with music on. Who knows, just happy I have it:D

    This has seemed to happen to us. At the time, I was thinking the dog got restless and the kids sensed that, but I don't know.
    I do think overall there is something about diabetes and the siblings so far, it just seems to kind of tighten up all the bolts on those bonds. . . .
    Beautiful of Sophie . . .

    Mine have had the problem of going to sleep when they are dropping to low. They would check normal but after not being able to go to sleep we checked and they would be very low. Guess it makes them feel funny. Thank goodness.

    This is great Sophie can feel that!

    I often wake up and can't fall back asleep if I'm low. I won't feel low, but I've learned to test if I wake up randomly.

    Hopefully she keeps it up!

    Sophie is an angel!

    She is only 2, and already a little hero.

    I believe that young children, tend to be tuned in more.
