    I'm glad he's eating for you. I hope he heads to the lagoon and surfs safely. Sending more prayers for your mom.

    Hi!

    I see you're giving very small micro doses - can I learn from you on how you manage to do this? I am currently giving Aurora .25 and might need to drop down to .1 but no idea how to draw this up. @Mandy & Rex suggested depressing the syringe all the way down and then inserting it into the pen and the vacuum would draw up 0.1 on it's own without me having to do anything - haven't tried this yet..

    No, that is called the drop dose. 0.1u is just above the zero line as @Judy and Boomer said. I think 0.1u has 2 drops, but don't quote me on that! :p

    @Nicole Z Mandy is correct, the depression trick is for one drop. For 0.1u you are seeing just a sliver of light under the the end mark. The issue will be the inconsistency of the syringes. So I always lube my syringe up (Just pushing up and down so not stiff) and see where on the one of the moment the "bottom" is. On some it's actually the 0.5 mark. Wherever you find "bottom", 0.1 is a sliver of light above that. I think it's easier to draw than 0.25 cause my eyes struggle with that particular "eyeball" ;) You'll do fine and good when your kiddo gets the reduction!!!:bighug:

    Thanks! I will give that a try tonight. I also usually lube up the syringes first always so I'm used to that part. It's just seeing on the syringe that's the hard part...

    Pmps 138, 0.1u, 3c dinner, ate about 1/4 of serving, which I'll take. :)

    But I still don't get this.... how do you get to 138 pmps with no eating for over 5 hours but amps often under 100 with more recent food on board?????:confused::confused:
