I have two children with type 1 diabetes, JoJo and Nick both thirteen years old.  Over the past few months they have both found using the Genteel lancing device to be a pleasure.  The lancet only reaches the blood capillaries not the pain nerves which makes it pain free blood sugar testing.  For younger kids  ( JoJo did decorate hers) Genteel includes stickers to decorate their lancet that has customizable color options.  If you are interested in trying this product please email [email protected] for a discount code only available to parentingdiabetickids families!  

 

Genteel offers a painless lancing instrument, for both adults and children, that allows a small drop of test blood to be drawn, from both fingers and alternate sites, completely pain-free. Genteel's patented Contact Tip technology allows for precise depth control so the lancet reaches only the blood capillaries and not the pain nerves.

As it states above Genteel has painless lancing instruments for both adults and children.  They have a seperate website with a really wonderful 3 minute video just for kids, to encourage them to try painless lancing. Customized by her grandchildren both voiced the characters and drew the pictures!  Awesome stuff.
