My son exclusively uses the Delica lancet device. He will no longer use the pokers that come with the OneTouch meters. It can be adjusted so there is no pain. My son was dx'd at 3. He didn't like finger pokes much, but hated the shots more. Getting angry doesn't help anyone, but getting the job done quickly always helps. My husband and I had to hold my son still to do the shots. Try to do this matter of factly and quickly. Using bribery with the stickers helps -- any sort of cooperation needs to be rewarded.
