I was also using the cvs reguilar lancet and the first time I had to stick him 6 times it was horrible then i went to my local hospital and they gave the some tender foot lancets that they use for the newborns, they work awesome. my dcotor now is trying to get them for me through pharmacy through CVS so talk to your MD. I also warm his foot for about 5-10 min with a warm wash cloth before i do the stick to help the blood flow.
