Re: [IP] testing and treating kids without waki

I am sorry to hear of your son's diagnosis.  This is sometimes a hotly
debated topic, but many parents choose to wake up and test their children in
the middle of the night.  We test our son every night at midnight, 3:00
a.m., and 6:00 a.m.  If necessary, we correct a high or low blood sugar.  I
give my son soda.  I keep a bottle and measuring cup on his nightstand.  He
drinks it without waking up.  If you don't want to get up every night, some
parents choose to get up every other night or even once a week.  This all
depends on your comfort level.
