We've been going to our community pool for several years now, but my son was mostly just paddling around the shallow end or using a kick board to swim. This year, he is actually staying afloat on his own, and passed the deep end test so he can go off the diving board and on the slide...which he will do nonstop and I believe would do nonstop until he sank to the bottom! I watch him the entire time, and he literally goes until he is so tired it is only his face (staring upward!) that is above water while he swims. He is enthusiastic to say the least! So, of course, we've been battling lows, and I am trying to find the right number of carbs to give him for this new diving board mania of his! Wondering what other people give. He is only around 50 lbs. It used to be that keeping his pump off and maybe a couple of tablets would do the trick. The other day, I gave him 30 carbs worth of juice before we left for the pool, he did not wear his pump, and he still dropped to the 70s. I hate having to pull him out so we can treat him, and then he has to wait. But I don't want to overload him with carbs. Also a couple of days ago, I gave him the 2 juice boxes before we left...but then when he got there he just chose to paddle around and not do the manic diving bit. So, I'm sitting there wondering whether to pull him out and give him a bolus, or just see if he'd start swimming like crazy again. I kept asking if he was going to dive, but he didn't know. I ended up pulling him out for the bolus...10 minutes later, he was off the diving board every 10 seconds. So, I had to check him again and treat a little later. Do you guys load up with carbs up front, or just give as needed? He HATES being interrupted, which I understand, but I can't tell the future as to whether he will be super active or not now. "Swimming" seemed so easy last year when he wasn't actually swimming! He doesn't do any sports, so I'm really not used to managing such a high level of exercise with him.
