 In babies, blood draws are sometimes done as a "heel stick collection."  The baby’s heel will be pricked to collect a small sample of blood after cleaning the area. The collectors usually get you to sit with the baby on your lap, then you grip them pretty firmly and they do it quick. They should be experienced in babies and kids.
