Hi and welcome
As JG said the insulin dose is small
Its recommended when you do a change to wait a week then do another curve before raising the dose.
I would raise the dose to 1 unit total from the .5
Recommended dose for 7 pounds is 1.4
In the meantime it will really help to start spot checking before breakfast ..then. 2 hours after..then another at the 6 hour point.
This will help catch any lows.
