Monika, I have a almost 9 month old and i was able to start doing my spots at home when he was about 4or5 months i think…it is soo much easier…My genetecist gave me the filter paper to put the blood on and I have had a really har time getting the lancets the hospital gave me a bunch but no pharmacy around or no pharmacy I can find at all carry or can special order the tenderfoot lancets and they are the only ones I will use I Have just come the conclusion with my insurance that I will have the buy the lancets online(which is not hard at all) and then I will have to submit a claim and they will reimburse me…
