When you you start teaching your child to stick himself?  Is there an age? Is there a growth marker ie. his last baby tooth falls out?  Any advice would be appreciated.

that's a really great question.  since i don't have kids yet i'm wondering, what are the downsides to the port? are they only for infants, or can they be used throughout life?

i had a port for about 10 to 11 years. I had it taken out during the spring semester of my sophomore year in high school. I wanted to be a little bit more independent.  Before I had it taken out, I practiced sticking myself. Smiley i know it sounds a little weird, but it just seemed inevitable anyways.  I could have had my port for a longer period though.
