I know that usually the lab suggests a heel prick, but since the begging what we are doing is using the thing diabetics  use ( I don't know the word) and I take blood from her finger. It works fine, you have to be patient to get a large drop , but at the end I think it works fine without much of a reaction from the baby. I hope this helps.
