I noticed that you said that you are using 8mm syringes for your daughter. I think that the shorter syringes would be less painful. They have 3/16" syringes (or 5mm). Also check the "gauge" which tells you about the thickness of the needle. The higher the number the thinner the needle. I think that 31 gauge is the thinnest available. Here is a guide from the BD website
