Sara/Seraf, what a load of crap they fed you. You absolutely do not retract to get a catheter in. And a bag is perfectly fine, we use them all the time in NICU. If we're really concerned we do an in and out catheter (ie if the dipstick is positive for red blood cells, white blood cells and/or nitrites). I hope they got his blood quickly and it didn't take too many pokes. poor little guy.
