I just came across this website...

http://www.oliverslabels.com/designs/

They have labels, bag tags and safety wristbands for various food allergies that you can personalize with your childs name.

You can also include a found it code on the label in the event that the item gets lost.

I thought this would be great for putting on an epi-pen or a child's lunch bag or other items.

I just came across another great product...

http://www.mabel.ca/products/my+411+wristbands

This might be a great way to begin getting your child to wear a bracelet.

O.K. I just need to get a new medic bracelette mine looks like garbage. I will not get one from medic allert as they don't stay looking nice for long. I just need to figure what to write on the back. I figure if i write in big EPI PEN. that would tell alot. what I question is should any food items be listed such as shellfish since I heard that this is an ingredient in some medical supplies ??
What about any nuts.... I want to keep it to a minimum so it is basic and straight forward. I think anyone who reads epi will know what may be needed. Any thoughts?

I ordered DS a new bracelet also as there wasn't room for gelatin on the first one but due to it being in so many vaccines/medications I felt it had to be on there. I had the same thoughts as you , I think if someone is aware enough to read a medical id bracelet they will know what epipen means.

So his now says:

RX EPIPEN
ASTHMA
ANAPHYLAXIS
PEANUTS, TREE NUTS,SESAME
GELATIN AND OTHERS

The 'OTHERS' helps cover his additional anaphylactic allergies as well as the fact that his allergies do change as we add some, outgrow some.

I actually ordered a couple different style's of bracelet's for my DD and every morning she gets to "choose" which one she gets to wear. She likes to be able to choose. I always wear a bracelet too so that she can be like mommy and I let her pick out my bracelet for the day too. It's just become such a part of our life now - it's just like putting on socks in the morning. And yes, it does give a huge sense of relief to know that it's there.

Good idea! I find it easier to never take it off, and do that for DD, but having trouble finding a sturdy metal (so it can stay on during baths) bracelet that my DS doesn't develop a rash to. . .

I have my boys (2 and 5 y.o.) in the silicon bracelets from www.coolmedid.com

Very comfortable; especially in water. The selection is quite limited however.
